Honda continues to phase out diesel cars, plans to launch second electric model
A few days ago, foreign media reported that Honda plans to launch its second electric model in 2022. As for the configuration information of the car, there is no news so far.
In late October, the company said at an event that it would “electrify the entire product line,” demonstrating the company’s commitment to electrification. In addition, the president of Honda Europe said in an interview with the media: “Maybe our hydrogen fuel cell vehicle will be available, but that is the next generation of technology, and our current focus is on hybrid vehicles and pure electric vehicles.”
Next summer, Honda’s first pure electric car, the Honda e, will be launched in Europe, but not in the United States. The car is priced at $33,000 (about 231,200 yuan) and has a range of 200 kilometers. In addition, it is also equipped with a 35.5kWh lithium-ion battery, which can be charged to about 80% in just half an hour with fast charging.
In September, Honda said it would phase out all diesel vehicles by 2021.
