Honda is bringing the 2019 NSX and the battery-electric E Prototype at this year's Goodwood Festival of Speed for their UK debuts.
Both models will be on static display on the company’s stand, with the full-electric Honda E Prototype to also make its dynamic debut up the famous hill climb.
While the actual production Honda E will be unveiled later this year, both prototypes at the Festival of Speed are 95 percent true to it. Honda has already invited customers to place their a reservation for their first all-electric model, which will also feature rear-view door cameras as standard.

One of the highlights of the Honda E is the cabin; the Japanese car maker opted for the lounge-like atmosphere of the widely-praised concept, giving the E a dashboard dominated by five displays positioned next to each other for a very impressive wide-screen effect.
Honda hasn’t revealed any technical details yet on the E hatchback, letting us know that it will be capable of travelling for over 124 miles (200km) before requiring a recharge and be able to fast charge up to 80 percent of its capacity in 30 minutes.
Honda UK has also secured a "very limited" supply of the 2019 NSX, which features a range of upgrades under the skin. These include stiffer stabilizer bars and bushings, as well as software updates to the all-wheel drive system, power steering and active dampers, among other.
Honda has also updated the 3.5-liter twin-turbo V6 engine with new injectors, a particulate filter and better heat protection for the turbos. The power output of the hybrid powertrain however remains unchanged, at 573hp (581PS) and 476lb-ft (645Nm) of torque.
