Honda has confirmed more details on its cutesy electric car. The confusingly named Honda e will get a 36kWh lithium-ion battery which will ensure a range of ‘over 125 miles,’ the company announced today.
The low skateboard battery, which is water-cooled to maintain the optimum operating temperature, is positioned in the box-fresh electric car architecture to ensure 50:50 weight distribution, all the better for perky handling. It’s rear-wheel drive to boot.
Honda has also confirmed the new EV can be charged using the regular Type 2 AC connection or a CCS2 DC rapid charge plug (an 80% charge in 30 minutes is promised – if you can find a suitably powerful charger. The car will be in action at the 2019 Goodwood Festival of Speed in July.
