Honda E Prototype
Honda, we salute you. Despite a crushing weight of expectation, you’ve managed to turn the coolest concept car of the last few years – the 2017 Urban EV – into an almost-production model that retains a flavour of the concept’s retro-future fusion, and its blend of pared-back simplicity with cutting-edge tech. In other words, we still want one.
First order of business, the name’s changed, from the far catchier Honda Urban EV to Honda E Prototype. Odds on it’ll be called the Honda E when production starts in late 2019. Yep, Honda says this ‘prototype’ is 98 per cent finished and you’ll be able to buy one by the end of the year. No word on price, but this won’t be a low-cost car, much like Apple doesn’t make low-cost phones, so expect to pay somewhere between £25k and £30k.
