Honda Motor said it would launch production of a new series of battery electric vehicles BEVs from 2026 to make up ground in the change to zero emissions vehicles in global markets.
Honda unveiled two new concepts at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas this week and announced a new 0-Series BEV sub brand would go on sale worldwide, starting in North America. They would be based on a new platform.
Shinji Aoyama, Honda’s global vice president, said: “We have gone back to basics and formulated the 0-series with a design for the new era. A bold and pure proportion that from the first glance is overwhelmingly different from other EVs to evoke a new perspective for people.”
The company also unveiled a new H badge which it said represents Honda’s commitment for next generation EVs.
The concept models making their world debut at CES 2024 were the Saloon and SpaceHub.
Honda plans to introduce a high performance BEV in the US in 2026 based on the Saloon concept which has a sleek design and is based on a low platform with a wide interior. It will feature advanced technology including Level 3 autonomous driving, connected, HMI instrument panel and energy efficient battery pack.
