Re: No replacement for Honda E

Proof that Honda UK have no interest in selling EV's is their pricing on the Honda e:Ny1. Or even just selling cars looking at the launch price of the ZR-V. Suggests that the forthcoming CR-V could start in the mid £40'sK, with the PHEV perhaps the wrong side of £50K For the CR-V, that's maybe a £1...

Re: Cheapest Honda e for sale

I must say I am pretty lucky/relieved that I traded mine 11 months ago, when I was offered £1000 more than I paid for it a year earlier. The Jazz I replaced it with has exceeded all expectations and to be honest, I hardly ever fill it up with petrol, such is its efficiency. I recently replaced my se...

Re: The e gets a Which? Magazine best buy recommendation

I also made the switch from the E to the Jazz. The E was a great car to drive, but for me the Jazz surpasses it in most areas, especially practicality. The driving position better fits me and economy has ranged from mid 40's to low 80's to the gallon depending on conditions and journey distance. Ove...

Re: 12V battery issues

Just adding my experience over the year owned. As a second car it was usually only used occasionally, sometimes once or twice a week, often several weeks without use. The majority of the journeys were 2-3 miles, the annual mileage was 1300 and I typically charged the car at home once or twice a mont...

Re: Honda E p/x For new honda Jazz

Seems to be a common choice. I also ordered a Jazz EX Style after selling my E to the dealer at the end of August . I am due to collect this coming week. I also wish it had the 360 view for parking, the rest I wont really miss. The additional practicality and long range ability will be the biggest p...

Re: 1st month of ownership, thoughts.

Having sold my e today, I thought I should finish off my thread. Its been good to interact with so many e owners over this year, everyone being so helpful. I owned the e for a year and only covered 1380 miles. That 1380 miles was mostly made up of short trips, 2 miles in to town and 2 miles back The...

Re: October Energy Price cap

Today I took another test drive and made the decision to trade the e in against a new Jazz. I will really miss the e, both from its driving experience and its looks, but to get a new car with a new warranty with a sizeable chunk of cash back in my bank account was the overwhelming driver, even befor...

Re: October Energy Price cap

Interesting you went for a Jazz as I was looking at them yesterday. Many moons ago I had the original Mk1 Jazz and it did its job as a city car very well. The practicality though was incredible. I did a quick test-drive and the new model was surprisingly good around town with the new hybrid drivetra...

Re: October Energy Price cap

A useful spread sheet in this video comparing costs, which agrees with the quick cost calculation I did this morning https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8pv-ORA3TfA Since my e has averaged only 3.1 miles/Kwh over 12 months of ownership it not proved to be at the more efficient end of the spectrum. (Wint...

Re: October Energy Price cap

I do very few miles and it makes no financial sense to get a dual rate tariff as any dual rate peak tariff from Oct would be crippling for us as the cost of charging the car does not offset the higher peak rates. It will be even more of a shock for those that rely on public chargers. I must admit, I...
