On the lookout for your next car? Head to to find the right car from the right dealer, at the right price.
The Honda e is one of the most desirable electric cars of 2020… And Mat’s finally got his hands on one!
However, while it might have initially caught our eye with its looks, is it more style over substance? Or is the Honda e a serious contender to stand out in the ever-growing market of small electric cars?
Well with a range of only 137 miles it’s unlikely to be able to compete with some of the bigger, more expensive EVs, but how does it work as a little city runaround? We’ve set a series of 10 challenges through the centre of London to see just how Honda’s new EV can cope when put to the test through one of the busiest cities in Europe! Will it pass with flying colours? Stick with Mat to find out!

    • @carwow of course Tesla is the best in electric cars but the Honda E has so much charisma that I'd love to buy it. The most annoying thing to me is its range. I wish they will provide (at least as an optional) bigger batteries.

  • Why should I buy a new car. The depreciation is so high. Second hand cars are no better in depreciation. Why should the general public put up with this high depreciation. An urgent Government review is needed to look into the car industry retail sector.

  • does Honda make a gas version of this? I'd buy it, 1.0 litre gasoline with a turbo. cars in america are getting too big because americans are getting fatter, i'm a 6 ft tall guy but i love small cars. hope they make the gasoline on this chasis!

  • 9:22 - interesting that what you Brits refer to as a 'Panoramic Roof' is simply a 'sunroof' in the States. Panoramic is when it's over the front and rear seats, not just the front's. Compelling car otherwise. We'll not see it here. 😥

  • stop complaining about the traffic. The traffic I see in this video is amazingly good. You're always the 1st or 2nd car at the stop light, not the 15th car. We never get this good of a traffic and that's with Waze that knows the red spots and how to avoid them. Waze is mandatory. But then, I live in the number 1 city for bad traffic in Europe.

  • Someone has probably already said but the Queen is not in residence as she moved to Windsor at the start of the pandemic. The Royal Standard is the flag they fly when Her Majesty is in residence. No flag was flown originally, it was the death of Diana they started to fly the Union Flag so there was a flag to be put at half mast. As the ignorant public demanded the flag was flown at half mast but the Queen was in residence at Buck House, so they thought her Standard should be flown at half mast of course that would signify the sovereign had died🤦🏻‍♂️
