    Honda E Released for Europe

      ...We finally see the specs for this Europe only car...

    Ahead of its official debut at the Frankfurt Motor Show, Honda has unveiled the full specs of their Honda E small electric car. Honda developed the E with a focus on design simplicity and usability for the needs of modern urban lifestyles.  The clean external lines are helped by the use of exterior cameras replacing the traditional side mirrors.  The mirrorless design allows for better aerodynamics.  The interior has a full width digital dashboard with dual 12.3 inch LCD touch screens for infotainment and driver information. Owners are able to access the car via a digital key on a smartphone app.  The app can also report on things like battery charge control, range monitor, and navigation search results can be sent from the phone to the vehicle or have control of remote climate control.

    The Honda e makes use of contextual speech recognition to use natural language to provide access to a range of online services.  Occupants can activate the system by saying "Okay Honda"

    The power for the Honda E comes from a choice of two motors driving the rear wheels with either 134 horsepower or 151 horsepower. Torque comes in at 232 lb-ft. The 35.5 kWh battery is among the smallest in its class but still offers a range of about 137 miles. The e can recharge up to 80-percent of its battery in 30 minutes. The 0-62 mph run takes about 8 seconds. 

    Pricing has yet to be announced, but interested buyers in UK, Germany, France, and Norway and reserve their car online. The car remains Forbidden Fruit for the US.

    Yes it should.  If Honda was really ambitious, they would put that technology (BEV and all) into a CR-V.

    That would really sell better than this city car.  Even in Europe.

      Daimler CEO Källenius announced on Twitter yesterday that there would be a zero-emission EV version of the Mercedes-Benz G-Class on the way. He continued, "In the past there were discussions whether we should eliminate the model, the way I see things now I'd say the last Mercedes to be built will be a G-Class".
      The G-Class is already one of the most expensive models sold under the Mercedes-Benz brand. The EV version of the G-Class will likely be sold under the EQ brand. 
      An electric G-Class already exists though as Arnold Schwarzenegger and Kreisel Electric have already converted a G-Class to an EV.  It packs dual battery packs for 80-kWh of capacity good for a range of about 186 miles.
      No further details have been released as to when the EV G-Class would be launched.

      GM's Lordstown facility has been sold to startup Lordstown Motors.  Lordstown Motors will produce the Workhorse Endurance pickup truck, an all-electric truck, at the site. 
      The Endurance has all-wheel drive via 4 motors, one for each wheel.  It also has outlets to allow for the use of power tools. Workhorse is also in the bidding to make plug-in mail trucks for the U.S. Postal Service.  Workhorse has 6,000 orders for a truck based on the W-15 Prototype, and those orders would be moved to Lordstown for production. Workhorse is targeting fleet buyers. With fewer moving parts and lower fuel costs, it could translate to lower cost-to-own for fleet operators. 
      Lordstown Motors still needs to go through several more rounds of fund raising in order to continue development, conduct safety testing, and retool the plant for production.

      Ford teamed up with Webasto to build a new Ford Mustang EV concept car for the SEMA auto show in Las Vegas.  The car is a showcase for what is possible with electrification and emerging technologies in that field.
      The show car comes with more than 1,000 lb.-ft of torque and 900 horsepower routed through a 6-speed manual transmission. The car has been lowered an inch and sits on 20-inch staggered forged wheels. Under the hood is a dual-core electric motor with dual power inverters. Power comes from an 800-volt Webasto battery system that can discharge a mega-watt of electrical energy.  At 800 volts, the Mustang Lithium runs at twice the voltage that most electric cars on the road today use. That allows the system to be lighter, more powerful, and generate less heat. 
      The transmission is a drag-strip version of the Getrag MT82 6-speed with billet internals to handle the huge torque.  
      Mustang Lithium features a unique set of drive modes that apply a controlled amount of torque for different driving scenarios including: Valet, Sport, Track and Beast, and are instantly available on demand via a custom in-dash 10.4-inch touchscreen display.
      Ford is investing $11.5 billion in electrified vehicles by 2022, including an all-new Mustang inspired EV SUV and a Ford F-150 BEV.

    • I didn't like seafood as a kid.  Then I learned how good it is for you (certain types are amazingly high in protein and low in fat).  My mom would make a baked sole in a tomato/cacciatore type sauce that was delicious.  I would definitely eat it and ask for seconds. I'm with you on the shellfish.  I'm not sure how it smells different from other fish.  What I don't like, though, is the consistency and dealing with the outer shell.  I hate clams, crab, mussels, crayfish, and many more.  I had calamari within the last 10 years (in Europe), they tasted just okay, and, within hours, I got sick from them.  No one else in the party got sick.  I don't know what that was all about.  I won't eat them again.  Surprisingly, I'm okay with scallops and with larger shrimp.  I've had lobster about 5 times and it was good.  Once was at a seafood buffet on a Good Friday at Harvey's Casino at Lake Tahoe.  All the lobster you could eat. What you like is what I call "steak fish."  It's presented like a cut of meat or a chicken breast.  I agree. I love swordfish, halibut, and, if you get a good cut, shark can also be very tasty.  I also like smaller fresh water fish ... flaky and white, wow ... and if the scales have been removed.
    • "Just say yes" to Chandler's (AZ) IKEA.
    • Has FCA not learned that nobody in the USA wants a FIAT 500 (regardless of trim level)?!
    • GM should consider putting AWD on all of its (non-Cadillac) sedans as a $1000 option.  They already do that on the CUVs (although not as inexpensively).
    • I like the overall dash layout and the way it looks.  (So, that would be my lowly contribution to this thread.)
