Say hello to Honda's electric vehicle dubbed as 'e.'

Times are changing and the dawn of electric vehicles (EV) are inevitable as car companies start to aggressively shift to a new norm of mobility. In the past couple of years, car brands have been investing in producing more sustainable mobility by coming up with a more environmentally friendly vehicle.

Honda is among the brands that are committed to the said movement as it announced that its first mass-produced EV will roll out on October 30, 2020.

Dubbed as Honda e, it’s an urban EV commuter that’s integrated with a simple yet modern design with diminutive dimensions. The Japanese automaker says the e’s overall look adapts to the new era of mobility.

The front end of the Honda e features a clean and straightforward design that’s highlighted by the round headlights. It also comes with a sleek black grille as well as a charging port that’s placed at the center.

The white and black color scheme works well for us

Turning at the side, you’ll see that the Honda e doesn’t come with conventional exterior mirrors, which is a hint to the tech capabilities of this EV. The mirrors are replaced by cameras that feed live shots on a screen inside the car.

It also has a two-tone exterior finish of white and black, which further highlights the simple characteristic of the car. On the other hand, the rear also gets a straightforward design that banks on achieving an overall clean look. The Honda e’s simple exterior makes it stand out from other EVs in the market such as the Nissan Leaf.
