Honda's First-Ever EV is a 154-horsepower, 315 Nm of Torque Wonder

After some teasing (and a missed opportunity to name it the e Honda), Honda has finally showed off the production version of its first all-electric vehicle: the Honda e. It doesn’t look that different from the prototype version, but that’s entirely the point. So what’s the big news here? The carmaker has finally confirmed the powertrain’s figures and range.

Before that, it’s worth saying that the production version of the Honda e keeps the pop-out door handles and cameras that replace the traditional side mirrors. Ditto inside where a full-width digital dashboard contains no less than five screens.

With that out of the way, Honda has finally revealed that their first-ever EV produces two outputs (depending on the variant): 136 or 154 horsepower. The torque? An impressive 315 Nm. Driving the rear wheels, this EV reaches the 100 km/h mark in just 8 seconds. Yet, it delivers a range of 220 kilometers on a single charge thanks to a 35.5 kWh battery. A fast-charging capability allows it to reach 80 percent capacity in just 30 minutes.

The Honda e also debuts the brand’s own personal assistant system.

Currently, the Honda e is slated first for the European market with the rest of the world to follow.
