Q: When do I know what place in the queue I will be?

We will not be communicating a specific numbered place in a queue but our reservation system will maintain a priority order based on a 'first come-first served' approach. When we are ready to start taking orders following on from Frankfurt Motor Show, Honda e reservation customers will be invited to visit their chosen EV dealership to place their order.

Q: Can I change my place in the queue if it looks like it is too early or late for me?

You won't be able to change your place on the priority list, but if you are not ready to place an order when invited to do so, we may offer those behind you in the priority list the opportunity to place an order. When you do decide you are ready to place an order, you can contact us or your local approved Honda e Dealer who will be able to advise you of the approximate vehicle delivery date based upon the date of your order. We would encourage you to place your order as soon as you receive your invitation. This will confirm your order and your priority delivery date. We will send reminders to reservation holders regularly, however delivery timing cannot be confirmed until an order is placed.
