By 2035, Honda plans to sell only electric vehicles in China
Honda Motor Co., Ltd., will accelerate electrification in China and strive to make electric vehicles (EVs) represent 100% of its automobile sales in China by 2035, the Japanese automaker announced.
Honda also said it is accelerating the schedule ahead of its global target to increase the ratio of EV and fuel cell electric vehicle (FCEV) sales to 100% globally by 2040.”
At the opening of the Shanghai International Automobile Industry Exhibition last week, the company exhibited the world premiere of two prototype models, the e:NP2 Prototype and the e:NS2 Prototype.
Production models based on the e:NP2 Prototype and the e:NS2 Prototype introduced on April 18, 2023, are being developed as the second set of Honda e:N Series EV models, which will offer new value to Honda customers. Sales of the production models are scheduled to begin in early 2024.
Production models based on the e:N SUV 序 concept model, which was also introduced on April 18, are being developed as the third set of Honda e:N Series EV models. They will be positioned as new-generation e:N Series models which will feature both a “wild” nature unique to sport utility vehicles (SUVs) and near-futuristic intelligence. Honda plans to begin sales of production models based on this concept model before the end of 2024.
The event began in Shanghai, China, on April 18 and runs until April 27.
