Unofficial but UK journos still saying we will get deliveries from end of 2nd quater, so looking at July I guess. I think this still fits in with the original 'summer' launch so doesn't sound like anything has changed much.

We probably know more than Honda UK or their dealers! With the reviews out next week I'm expecting information to start flowing soon.

Oh and at least they must have produced more than 2 cars now - viewtopic.php?f=8&t=81

A little bit disappointed that we won't be able to drive our shiny new Honda e to Fully Charged Live this year, since they've shifted that forward from the second week in June to the beginning of May, and it looks like the Honda e deliveries won't now start until right at the end of the delivery window Honda first indicated to me (April-June).

i spoke to Honda UK on twitter as local dealer shrugged..

"Hi Jason,
We are still waiting on confirmed dates. We are currently looking at early summer. If the dates change we will announce it on our social channels.
Many thanks
Honda UK"

Getting "early Summer" is better than the vaguer "Summer". That is all they would commit to, when I checked again today. "Spring" for the demonstrators and "Summer" for deliveries. They refused to be pinned down any more than that.

Obviously you may have a close look at the car north of London:
46-52 High Road, Bushey Heath, Hertfordshire, WD231GQ
Is someone living nearby and may ask for a test-drive?

Good vid. And annoying. I chased my local dealership and let’s see what they say. Talk about slow and know nothing

WTF?!

That's just down the road from me. I'm going to be on the blower to my local stealer to find out what's going on, then probably driving over to Bushey!

BTW: "...three months before official release..." - So, deliveries in May?

UPDATE: My stealer has said they're not getting their training until late April, and have had no further update on demonstrator availability. They certainly haven't been offered an early demonstrator. What he was able to give me though was our own delivery date: 17th June. Oh, well - I suppose "Summer" could have been much worse, since it's doesn't even officially start until 20th June.
