Honda e reliability & safety

The Honda e has no Euro NCAP crash-test rating yet, but it’s packed with driver aids

Rating
Reliability & safety Rating

The Honda hasn’t been independently crash-tested by Euro NCAP yet, but it's very generously equipped with safety equipment. Reliability should be very good, although the car is too new for ownership data to be available.  

Honda e reliability & problems

There’s too little data on the Honda e to judge accurately how reliable it'll be, but Honda has a great reputation for dependability as a brand; it was ranked seventh out of 30 manufacturers surveyed in the 2020 Driver Power owner survey.

Safety

The Honda e gets an impressive array of safety equipment, including a semi-autonomous driving mode that combines lane-keeping assistance and adaptive cruise control to help take the stress out of heavy traffic and motorway driving.

It also gets traffic-sign recognition that beams the relevant speed limit onto the dashboard, as well as those camera side mirrors. Go for the Advance trim level and you get a rear-view camera built into the rear-view mirror, which you can switch on or off, as well as an automatic parking system that’ll steer the car into a parking space for you. There’s no space-saver spare wheel or spare tyre; a tyre inflation kit is standard.
