Geneva ’17: two thirds of European Hondas to feature electric power by 2025


Next stop, Europe

Honda’s take on future fuels has been quite patchy up until now. Sure, a tonne of its cars in both America and Japan can already be spec’d with a ‘Hybrid’ badge on the rear, but since the culling of the Insight and CR-Z recently in European markets, the firm’s entire range in this continent is sadly powered by either a diesel or petrol motor, with no added electric spark to be seen.

A shock announcement today from Honda Motor Europe’s President and COO, Katsushi Inoue, confirms that Europe will be playing catch-up over the next few years, leading the way in terms of Honda’s EV range by 2025.

Inoue-san confirms Honda’s aim to have electrified powertrains in two thirds of European cars sold by 2025. This will come in the form of hybrids, full EVs, and fuel-cell vehicles, with the first new hybrid model (which will feature Honda’s two-motor hybrid system) to go on sale in 2018.

Concepts a’plenty

Honda’s Clarity and rather quirky NeuV concept cars were both on today at today’s show, more pictures of which can be found on our social media channels. Stay tuned for a full Geneva Show Report very soon…
