Our commitment is clear: Honda will produce hybrid, plug-in hybrid, battery electric and fuel cell cars to make up two thirds of their European sales by 2025; it’s the first of many steps.
Speaking at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show, Honda Motor Europe’s President and COO, Katsushi Inoue stated that Europe is at the forefront of Honda’s global electric vehicle strategy.
The announcement came just weeks after Honda was confirmed as the fastest growing mainstream car brand in the region during 2016. Electrification in Europe will initially be driven by a roll-out of hybrid technology across its automobile range. The first new hybrid model, which will feature Honda’s two-motor hybrid system, will go on sale in 2018.
It’s important for us to achieve our goals and we are especially proud of our innovations that contribute to a cleaner environment. The ‘Electric Vision’ initiative is part of Honda’s vow to drive the adoption of fuel cell vehicles – along with the creation of a viable hydrogen-refuelling infrastructure – across the region.
