Spotted this article, it was posted just a few days ago. Figured I would share it here:

Every time we see more of the Honda E, it makes us sad it won't be coming to the US because, well, just look at it. In Europe, buyers have already begun to fill out reservation lists, but ahead of the production car's debut at the 2019 Frankfurt Motor Show, the Japanese automaker has spilled the finer details.

Up until now, the images we've seen have represented prototype builds, and we're happy to report these production images reflect just about everything that makes the E look so gosh darned great. The happy front fascia is still there with its round headlights. The retro looks continue to the rear where circular taillights sit in place. Even the side camera mirrors are meant for production, which help keep a clean side profile. That technology isn't legal in the US, but NHTSA will finally look into camera-as-mirror systems. It's likely inevitable the technology gets a green light from US regulators.
The more I read about it, the more promising it sounds. I can see why so many people, including my wife, are very fond of it.
