Honda has moved forward its goal for all of its European mainstream models to feature electrified powertrains. The previously announced target of 2025 has been amended to 2022.
Including the all-new Jazz and Honda e, the Japanese OEM plans to launch six electrified models for the European market in the next 36 months. This also includes a further battery electric vehicle and a range of e:HEV equipped models.
“This shift to electrification will change the face of our model line-up considerably,” explained Tom Gardner, senior vice president, Honda Motor Europe. “Our two-motor hybrid technology will be spread across the model range and we will bring further battery electric product to the market.”
