Fleets can now reserve Honda’s new urban electric vehicle, the Honda e, via a dedicated website.
A refundable reservation fee of £800 will give customers ‘priority status’ and they will then be able to place an order later this year, with first deliveries expected from spring 2020.
Honda has already received more than 20,000 expressions of interest across Europe, with approximately 6,000 of those coming from the UK.
The Honda e is the first compact Honda on a dedicated EV platform and will deliver a range of more than 125 miles and the capability to ‘fast charge’ to 80% battery capacity in 30 minutes, according to the manufacturer.
Five colour options are available: Platinum White Metallic, Crystal Black Pearl, Crystal Blue Metallic, Modern Steel Metallic and Charge Yellow.
Phil Webb, head of car at Honda UK, said: “The official naming and the opening of the reservation process is the next step in the Honda e journey and the path to 100% electrification of Honda’s model range in Europe by 2025. UK customers are leading the charge by being among the first in Europe to reserve their priority status to order the Honda e.”
