Electric vehicle (EV) fans who prefer the Honda brand may soon be spoilt for choices as the Japanese automaker plans to debut a whole series of all-electric models at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in January. The cars will reportedly come with key technologies and have a global marketing.
Honda is working hard to attain carbon neutrality by 2050. Part of its plan is opening the floodgates of electric vehicles, up to 30 new models by 2030 globally. It expects to move 2 million units annually by that time, more than Tesla currently sells. On a regional basis, Honda wants to sell only zero-emission cars in North America by 2040.
More details on how they plan to achieve these figures will be revealed at the CES coming up next month. During a press conference at the event, scheduled for January 9 at 10:30 a.m. PT, Honda says it will unveil a new EV series. The automaker accompanied the announcement with an image that seemed to portray a concept car with noticeable sharp angles while not volunteering much information on what to expect.
Honda has been quietly expanding its EV efforts. The 2024 Honda Prologue starts at under US$50,000 while offering 300 miles of driving range. Future Honda EV buyers, however, will be happy to know they can make use of Tesla’s popular Supercharger when in need of charging in public.
