Frankly, the Honda e is a good-looking car even without any visual add-ons. This isn’t stopping the carmaker from offering the clean, minimalist electric vehicle with a couple of aesthetic upgrades, though.

In the Japanese market, the Honda e is launching with a handful of genuine accessories meant to build on the quirky hatchback’s humble but eye-catching appearance. They’re relatively subtle, but if you’re looking to make your car stand out even just a little from the rest of the pack, the option is available.

The most notable upgrade to the exterior comes in the form of sportier-looking 17-inch wheels courtesy of Modulo. Personally, we think the stock look with black multi-spoke alloys is a more attractive look, but hey, if you dig these chunkier rims, go for it.

Inside, you can replace the Honda e’s wood trim on the dashboard and center console—which we think is some of the nicest-looking in the business—with a more unique dimple bronze one. Also available is an illuminated accent with the Honda e logo for the vehicle’s door well, nicer carpeting, and reversible luggage mat for the cargo area. Another accessory worth mentioning is a waterproof fabric cover for the charging port on the Honda e’s hood.

How much? Well, the new wheels will set you back a cool ¥58,300 (around P26,000) excluding taxes, while interior add-ons like the new bronze trim and the door-well illumination will cost you at least ¥16,500 (P7,500) and ¥30,800 (P14,000), respectively. You can check out the prices of the rest of the upgrades on Honda’s official Japan website.

Again, we’re perfectly happy with the Honda e’s simple stock look. It’s just so clean. Do you agree, or do you think some of these accessories are worth getting?
