Welcome to a good old-fashioned review of two very new-fashioned cars.
One is the new Honda E. A loveable small electric car but with also quite a small range. It costs £28,660 (after government grant) and has 151bhp from its electric motor, which is good for 0-62mph in 8.3sec and a top speed of 90mph. Its WLTP range is 137 miles.
The other is the Mini Electric. It costs £24,400 (after the government grant), has 181bhp, can do 0-62mph in 7.3sec and has a top speed of 93mph and has a WLTP range of 144 miles.
They’re both, though, rather good fun to drive. Join our tester James Disdale as he puts the two head-to-head to see which comes out on top.
