Now that the 2019 IAA Frankfurt Motor Show is just around the corner, major car brands are preparing their wares. Just like the automotive trade shows before it, we can expect to see major reveals and surprises. Moreover, with the upsurge of electrification, you can look forward to a lot of EVs making their debut. However, there are manufacturers that cannot wait to show off their wares. Therefore, we are seeing announcements like the Porsche Taycan Turbo S. Now its time for the Honda e to shine.

You might think this is another prototype update, but Honda is actually teasing the production model. Furthermore, the Japanese carmaker is fueling the fire even further by taking pre-orders right now. It won’t be long till eco-minded individuals will be driving around in this cool compact hatchback. Aesthetically, nothing much has changed from its concept stages. It retains the upbeat vintage vibe that will hum along quietly as your daily transport.

From the outside, there are a few things that remind us that the Honda e is a modern ride. The LED headlights on each side of the backlit emblem, the absence of conventional side mirrors, and the near-silent operation. Inside is another thing entirely thanks to the dual 12.3-inch displays on the dash.

Buyers of the Honda e can choose from a 134 horsepower or 151 horsepower variant – both of which comes with 232 lb-ft of torque. This all-electric drivetrain can accelerate from standstill to 62 mph in eight seconds. Lastly, the 33 kWh water-cooled lithium-ion battery system can take you up to 136 miles on a full charge.
