If you were to glance at the new pure electric Honda e:Ny1 across a crowded carpark, you could be forgiven for thinking that it just looks like the familiar, petrol-powered Honda HR-V in a slightly futuristic hat.

But Honda would like you to think of the e:Ny1 as a stylish, dynamic little SUV that’s absolutely going to appeal to hip young things. Who don’t mind telling people that the drive a car with a name like a postcode.

Honda already has an electric car in the shape of the glorious Honda e, but that super-stylish electric city car costs a billion pounds and has the range of an unfit person’s bicycle (actually £36,920 and 137 miles, Ed)

The e:Ny1 is much more mainstream. It’s a five-seat electric SUV that’s not big and not small, with styling that’s neatly conservative and fine-but-not stand-out everything else. Honda themselves say its rivals are the best selling Hyundai Kona and Kia Niro EV, although the pricing is actually closer to another big seller – the Tesla Model Y. But more of that in the pricing section later.

Join Nicola as drives the Honda e:Ny1 for the first time. Are you a fan of Honda’s newcomer? Will you be choosing one? Let us know in the comments below.
