The Honda e Prototype and the 2019 NSX are set to make their UK debut at this year’s Goodwood Festival of Speed. With the UK’s largest motoring garden party set to kick off in a month’s time, both cars will be on static display on the stand with the recently named and highly anticipated Honda e Prototype also making its UK dynamic debut up the famous hill climb.
With the mass production version of the Honda e set to be unveiled later this year, both Honda e models on the hill and on the stand will be the prototype version, which made its European debut at the Geneva Motor Show in March.
The news comes as Honda recently announced customers can make a reservation for priority ordering online as well as confirming the side camera mirror system will come as standard on the production car.
Honda has also confirmed today that a very limited supply of the 2019 NSX has been secured and that the Goodwood Festival of Speed will mark the first time this version has been seen in the UK.
Last year, Honda revealed a range of enhancements for the 2019 NSX which make the ground-breaking hybrid supercar even more pleasurable to live with day-to-day, and even more exciting to drive on track.
Dave Hodgetts, managing director at Honda UK commented: “With both cars featuring an electrified powertrain, the UK debut of the pure electric Honda e Prototype and the 2019 hybrid NSX further demonstrate Honda’s commitment to achieving its objective of 100% of automotive sales featuring an electrified powertrain by 2025.”
The Goodwood Festival of Speed runs from Thursday 4th July to Sunday 7th July 2019.
