Honda Motor Europe’s president and COO, Katsushi Inoue, has revealed key details of the company’s ‘electric vision’. Speaking at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show, Inoue outlined Honda’s commitment to an electric vehicle future in Europe, with the aim to have electrified powertrains in two thirds of European cars sold by 2025.

Said Inoue-san, “We will leverage Honda’s global R&D resources to accelerate the introduction of a full portfolio of advanced, electrified powertrains for the European customer.”

The OEM’s focus on electrification in Europe will initially be driven by a roll-out of hybrid technology across its vehicle range. The first new hybrid model, which will feature Honda’s two-motor hybrid system, will go on sale in 2018.

The company will also make plug-in hybrid, battery electric and hydrogen fuel cell vehicles commercially available to European customers.
