You want this Honda e Limited Edition in glorious red
Only 50 examples of the Honda e Limited Edition are coming to Europe, but that rarity comes at a price…
As if the Honda e didn’t boast enough kerb appeal already, its makers have now unveiled a Limited Edition version available for the first time in ‘Premium Crystal Red’. Ooft.
Modelled here by reigning F1 world champion Max Verstappen (Red Bull still has links with Honda, even if the latter has now left the sport), only 50 examples of the electric city car will be coming to Europe.
As well as the spangly paint job, you also get a variety of contrast black trimmings, including the badges front and rear, various body panels and on the 17-inch alloy wheels.
The special edition car is based on the Honda e’s uppermost Advance trim, so you get Honda’s parking pilot system, a heated steering wheel and a 230V outlet socket included.
Heated front seats, a sunroof, LED daytime running lights and that ultra-cool, full-length screen are all standard features of course.
These days Advance grade will cost you £36,920 (there’s no government grant to take the edge off now, don’t forget), whereas the Limited Edition will set you back £38,120. Which is a lot of money for not a great deal of car.
“The Honda e Limited Edition is simply lovely,” said Verstappen, and definitely not a press officer making something up on his behalf. “It has funky looks, a compact design and is fun to drive. It’s a great electric urban vehicle.”
Verstappen is said to have driven the e before the Emilia Romagna Grand Prix at Imola earlier this year, a race he went on to dominate with a maximum points haul. Maybe they promised him a discount if he won?
