Performance figures released for the super-cute Honda e

Here are the numbers: you can get 100 or 113-kilowatt versions (134 or 152 horsepower), and both versions will enjoy a peak torque of 315 Nm (232 lb-ft). It’ll feel zippy, but not quite as zippy as a Nissan Leaf, taking around 8 seconds to “I think I can, I think I can” its way to 100 km/h (62 mph).

You’ll get just 35.5 kWh of battery, but Honda claims that’ll be good for up to 220 km (137 miles), and nobody’s pretending this thing is a tourer. You’ll use it around town, plug it in at home or at the office, and probably never need to use its ability to fast charge from 0-80 percent in 30 minutes…

The Honda e will make its public debut at the Frankfurt Motor Show, and we feel there’s really only one other piece of information we’ll need: does the horn make a happy little “beep beep” sound?
