The Honda e is the company’s first pure-electric production car. Vicky Parrott thinks the Honda e city car redefines the premium small car segment with it’s cool retro looks and tech-laden interior.

Everything from the range of the Honda e to its high-tech finish and dinky size makes it a direct rival to the MINI Electric, while the Renault ZOE delivers a less premium experience, but nearly double the driving range and a bit more interior space for a similar price. The Skoda Citigoᵉ iV is also a close rival, offering a much more basic interior, but at a drastically lower price.

Sit inside the Honda e and it’s clear how the price might be justified. When you slide into the driver’s seat, which has lovely, tactile upholstery, you’re faced with a touchscreen horizon stretching the width of the car. Screens for the side cameras (in place of door mirrors) bookend the digital driver’s readout and two central 12.3-inch touchscreens, and even the rear-view mirror doubles as a rear-facing camera in the Advance, should you want it.
