What fully electric vehicles does Honda plan on building
Honda to launch 30 fully electric vehicles by 2030
Honda strives to offer two thirds of global vehicle sales in 2030 as zero-emission vehicles and will be strengthening its development of electric vehicles in addition to fuel cell vehicles in order to meet that target.
To reach this goal, Honda will spend $40 billion on electrification over the next 10 years, which will include building its own electrification architecture.
Honda currently only sell the Honda e, but plan on launching 30 electric vehicles globally by 2030.
The compact Honda e is a fully electric vehicle that was designed to help minimise the effect of vehicles on the environment, especially in urban areas. This model was designed from the ground up to be the perfect urban vehicle and is based on Honda’s philosophy of human-centred engineering.
The advanced electric drivetrain employs proven Honda electrification technologies along with fast charging capabilities. The high-capacity 35.5kWh battery can provide 222km of range and can be charged to 80 percent in just 30 minutes.
At the recent CES technology trade show, Sony unveiled the Afeela electric vehicle which it will build in conjunction with Honda.
Among those 30 models will be two sporty EVs, one of which will replace the Acura NSX in markets where that model was previously sold but the majority will be crossover utility models as well as a variety of models to suit varying market needs such as those of Japan and China.
The technology on which all these models will be based has not yet been revealed but will most likely be based on an expansion of the current Honda e:Architecture.
From the development of extremely clean diesel engines to the production of hydrogen cars, Honda has for a long time prioritised the automobile industry’s efforts to improve fuel efficiency and reduce vehicle emissions. Honda is currently accelerating its efforts to reduce CO2 emissions with a dedicated approach to the development of new technology, which includes more fuel-efficient gasoline engines, gas-electric hybrids, natural gas and battery electric vehicles, plug-in hybrids and fuel cell vehicles.
Honda’s electrification strategy will most likely include a variety of conventional hybrid vehicles in the near and medium term as well as plug-in hybrid models.
In Europe Honda currently offers six mainstream models that feature advanced, electrified powertrains. This includes the Honda e with an electric powertrain. Models such as the Honda Fit, HR-V, CR-V are available with hybrid powertrains.
Honda believe that the time for hybrid power is now as they deliver dramatically better fuel consumption and lower C02 emissions than traditional petrol-powered vehicles. Honda first introduced hybrid technology with the Insight in 1999 and have since then made significant improvements regarding the development of these technologies.
Honda’s Sport Hybrid SH-AWD is their next generation four-wheel drive system that utilises a large electric motor in front and two electric motors at the rear. In this manner it contributes to the cornering and braking performance as well as fuel efficiency. The Honda Hybrid Performance i-MMD offers a highly responsive, super smooth driving experience from a system that thinks for itself.
Honda have announced that the 2024 Prologue will be their first electric SUV.
