HONDA’S ‘ELECTRIC VISION’ – TWO THIRDS OF EUROPEAN SALES TO FEATURE ELECTRIFIED POWERTRAINS BY 2025
Honda is presently seen as being behind in electrification of its cars but the japanese car manufacturer is currently reportedly engaged in a crucial new program in partnership with CATL, China’s biggest battery maker.
The Urban EV Concept
Honda's first electric car for the European market is a retro-styled city vehicle that's shorter than the Jazz. The concept can accommodate four occupants, but a production version is likely to allow five.
No powertrain or range details were given at launch, but Honda said the car would include a high-density lightweight battery pack, integrated heat management and energy transfer functions both to and from the vehicle. A source at Honda suggested a short to middling range, so 155 miles (250km) is expected.
The car maker recently announced that every new model line from now on would feature electrified technology in Europe.
In Europe, it hopes to have two-thirds of its new car sales using electrified technology by 2025, five years earlier than its overall global goal.
