More Honda E Details, Video, Photos Emerge, And It's Still Cute

More Honda E details, video, photos emerge, and it's still cute

Thanks to Honda hosting media in Valencia, Spain, for first drives of the Honda E, we have more details on the city car we're condemned to lust after from afar. The power and range specs we already knew — either 134 horsepower from the base model, or 152 hp in the upper Advance trim, and 232 pound-feet of torque from both, deliver a 137-mile range from the 35.5-kWh battery pack. The distance figure is measured on the more accurate WLTP cycle, not the old NEDC; however, it requires the standard 16-inch alloys to achieve. Opting for the 17-inch wheels cuts range to 130 miles. The E hits the scales with 3,338 pounds, balanced 50:50 over the wheels. The weight makes the two-door about 350 pounds heavier than the old Fiat 500e, which was 11 inches shorter, and the E is exactly 200 pounds lighter than a Nissan Leaf, which is 23 inches longer.

Ps5 Backwards Compatibility With Ps4 Still In The Works

PS5 Backwards Compatibility With PS4 Still In The Works

According to a report from Famitsu, it seems that Sony is still working on ensuring 100% backwards compatibility with the PS4. When asked about backwards compatibility, Sony was quoted as saying (translated by DualShockers’ Iyane Agossah), “Our development team is currently hard at work in order to make 100% backward compatibility with PS4 possible. Please wait for further information.”

The idea of backwards compatibility was initially revealed earlier this year in an article by WIRED, where Sony’s Mark Cerny confirmed that the PS5 would be backwards compatible with the PS4. However, this feature was not mentioned in Sony’s recent announcement, leading some to wonder if the feature could be launched in time or if it could come at a later date through a software update.
