The Honda e is an electric vehicle launched in Europe and Japan in 2020. It has an electric motor that produces 134hp and 315Nm, and is paired with a 35.5kWh battery for a range of 220km.

Being an EV that is compact yet stylish, the car has won numerous awards such as the World Urban Car of the Year in 2021, and the Red Dot Design Award.

Following this success, the Japanese carmaker has now presented the Honda e Limited Edition with none other than 2021 Formula 1 champion Max Verstappen as its endorser. Based on the Advance Grade trim, the car comes with an exclusive Premium Crystal Red paint along with black accents and black 17-inch alloy wheels.

Before his victory in Imola in Italy this year, Verstappen drove a Honda e Limited Edition in Dozza, known for its street art. The world champion was impressed not only with its design, but also with its handling around the tight and narrow streets of the medieval village.

The Honda e Limited Edition is simply lovely,” said Verstappen. “It has funky looks and a compact design, and is fun to drive. It’s a great electric urban vehicle.”

With only 50 units for the European market, the runabout is available at £38,120 (P2,540,000).
