The Honda e (Japanese: ホンダ e, Honda Ī) is a upcoming Racing Mini 4WD car released by Tamiya in November 2020.

It was based on the electric car of the same name by Honda.

General info[edit | edit source]

The Honda e features the 5-door hatchback body design, with a pair of circular-shaped headlamps on the front and ta pair of taillamps on the back. It has the back rooftop.

As with Nissan Be-1 and Toyota GR Yaris, the Honda e has a special bodycatch due to how the bodyshell was designed. Being equipped with the VZ Chassis, it is possible to make it more resemble to its real-life counterpart by removing the front bumper and rear stay.

In additions to the standard body decals, it was also provided with the numbering bib decals.

Standard model[edit | edit source]

The standard Honda e has the bodyshell molded in Charge Yellow Metallic color.

It was equipped with the black, small diameter dish-type low-profile wheels paired with the black low-profile slick tires. The chassis frame and A parts were molded in black.

About the real-life vehicle the Mini 4WD car is based on[edit | edit source]

Debuted in the 2019 Geneva Motor Show as a pre-production model and later in the 2019 IAA as a production model, the Honda e is a electric car manufactured by Honda.

The heart of the Honda e is a electric motor (capable of producing 134 to 152 hp of power and 315 N⋅m of torque) mounted into the rear of the car, which transfers the power to the rear wheels. Powering the motor is a water-cooled, 5.5 kWh lithium-ion battery that was mounted underneath the car, and is capable of running up to 220 km when fully charged. The battery can be charged through the CCS Combo 2 connector, which supports both AC and DC fast charging.

Supporting the car platform are the all-wheel, independent MacPherson strut suspension system. The car was also equipped with disc brakes that were equipped with the regenerative braking system.
