When this was posted two months ago, it seems not much has changed from the version that was tested by journalists back then to the release now:

It needs a cheaper, less powerful version.

the lack of side view mirrors feels odd..actually the whole dash is odd. i guess this is what going 'digital' means.

personally i like more analog switches and i dislike the new style where options are buried within a digital/touchscreen console and where one must navigate sub menus to find an option...dangerous stuff imo.

anyways, no doubt the lack of side mirrors in favour of more screens helps raise the price point.

I'd totally buy one of those. I just don't think they'll make it. Someone needs to bump this thread in 3 years to make one of us poorer
I think I'm about to be down 10.

The Audi E-tron has camera mirrors as an option, but the little Honda has them as standard, which is surprising on a lower priced city EV, and would have cost a bit to include. I guess as were not used to them they look odd, but if they get widely adopted, we probably wont even notice the difference. Wonder how much to replace one if it gets damaged? Could it be cheaper than a modern fancy electric mirror?

- with analog controls you know where they are and can use them without looking. I'm not sure that's possible with the touch screen thingies.

And that Honda - 30K Not a chance.

Well, if that becomes more than a concept, I hope it replaces that current abortion they call the Clubman...

'The new Mini MPV has been conceived to appeal to family car buyers seeking greater levels of interior versatility and space than the existing Clubman and Countryman.

It will be based on parent company BMWs FAAR platform, which supports front- and four-wheel drive. There will be versions powered by internal combustion engines, a plug-in hybrid and, later in its seven-year life cycle, a battery-electric driveline in a Traveller SE model. The new five-seater is intended to complement existing Mini models. '

Not sure how optimised for EV use the FAAR platform is, so that version could be a compromise. Shame if so because it would be a useful size vehicle for a lot of people.....
