5 Unique Facts about Honda E, Next Year`s Lethal Injection?


Honda has officially announced that production for its flagship battery electric vehicle (BEV) model, the Honda e, will end in January next year (2024). The Honda e, which has a unique and cheerful design, first debuted in 2020 and has been sold in Europe and its home market, Japan, for around 4.95 million yen (around 532 million rupiah).

Reporting from Autobuzz, although the Honda e has received quite a lot of attention from the public around the world thanks to its unique design, due to its high price, below average battery range, unsatisfactory sales, coupled with global inflation, we have to say goodbye to Honda’s cute electric car.
