Dumb question here.

It's so easy and handy to unlock the car when you're close enough to the car and you own the keys.
You can left them in the pocket and almost forget about them.

Then, when you get out of the car, you suddenly need to find them to lock down the car!
I was used with my previous car that had a lock/unlock button on the front doors handles that easily let you lock the car with a double pressure on it, no button key required.

Is there a faster way with Honda E as well?

Thanks)

I felt it was a dumb question, sorry for that.

Thank you so much!

Not entirely dumb, that's what we are here for.
The Locking action is not always that responsive. Sometimes a simple touch works, sometimes it needs a longer dwell, stroke or pressure. And timing can be factor.

Also the jury is out as to whether the Pop Out handle feature is a bonus or not. I've set mine off. Others tolerate “pop-outs” every time you go near your car with a key.

Does it not lock automatically when you walk away?

My over 3 year old Zoe does that and in terms of tech it is way behind the e so I would be very disappointed if it didn't.

No it doesn't have that feature. If you unlock the car but then don't open a door within 30 seconds then it will lock the car again, but otherwise when leaving the car you have to manually lock the car by either touching the door handle or pressing the button on the fob. It's perfectly reasonable.

Fair enough! And thanks for bothering to answer my question. Though I do have to defend the feature as it's great. Close the door, walk away, a quick beep from the car and you know it's locked.

Does the e have at least some sort of button/touch sensitive area on the door so you can lock it quickly without having to fumble around for the key?

Just to be clear, I am very aware that even calling it a first world problem overestimates how much of a problem it is...

Yes: touch the sensor on top of the front door handle (or the lock button on the tailgate).

When I first had mine I spent a month not realizing the car wouldn't lock itself. ;) It should standard by now and all the cars that i have, have that feature so I didn't even realize that 'till someone here told the car did not lock itself.

TL;DR The car spent a full month whenever I went somewhere fully unlocked... :)

I may be teaching you guys how to suck eggs but I’ve recently discovered an extra lock button in the boot handle disguised (or at least feeling like) a cross pattern screw head. It’s small and to the right of the main boot release button. Much easier than the hit and miss door handle sensors.
