Featuring a simple, clean exterior with a unique style, the pop – out door handles and Side Camera Mirror System are exclusive features for a vehicle in its class whilst the circular lamp design for the front and rear lights help define the ‘human face’ of the car. Inside the interior complements the exterior perfectly. Contemporary materials create a relaxing and modern lounge like space enhanced by melange -style sofa fabric and other tactile materials. The advanced technology within the cabin make the Honda e easy to use every day. Five neatly integrated high-resolution colour screens span the entire width of the car’s interior, with the Side Camera Mirror Systems screens ergonomically placed at either end of the dashboard to ensure a natural feel and vision for the driver and for the first time in Ireland the Honda Parking Pilot is available on the Honda e. This assists the driver in locating an appropriate space and then manoeuvring the car into it. In addition to this feature Honda SENSING has also been enhanced with three new functions:

Lead Car Departure Notification System – notifies the driver when the car in front has started moving

Collision Mitigation Throttle Control – prevents sudden acceleration in either reverse or drive upon starting the car when there is an obstacle in the way

Low Speed Brake Function – applies emergency braking while driving or reversing at low speed

Sales and Marketing Director of Universal Honda Ltd. John Saunders said today at launch, “We are very excited at Honda to be welcoming the urban city -car the all new Honda e into our model line-up. The all-electric Honda e is part of a wider transition to newer technologies and is the next step on our vision to electrify all our mainstream models sold in Europe by 2022.
