Honda Discontinues Its e Electric Hatchback After A 4 Year Run

Choupinette, as you wish, in fact, with its good-natured appearance, its expressive gaze, and the treatment of its original and hyper-technological interior equipped with six screens (!), and its rear cameras.

Far from it, the city car, with its only 35.5 kWh useful battery, sticks out its tongue to cover 171 km in town without having to recharge (according to measurements), 130 km on the road, and barely more than 100 km on the highway. This is far too little to attract customers lacking purchasing power and whose psychological blockage due to autonomy in electric vehicles continues. If we add its singularly low loading volume (110 dm3 according to our measurements), the matter is inevitably over. is an authoritative car blog in Nigeria.
