Honda Planning Two Full EVs, Not Until 2024

Honda playing EV catch-up

  • New Acura, Honda EVs expected, will take a few more years

  • Expect more Honda Hybrids in meantime

 


Honda has just announced that it plans to sell two all-electric SUVs in the US in the next three years, which will join hybrid-electric models of its top sellers that are expected to arrive even sooner. The new vehicles would be part of the partnership between Honda and General Motors.

Honda of America sales boss Dave Gardner said that one of the two crossovers set to arrive in 2024 will be a Honda, while the other will wear an Acura badge. More details are expected on the two later this year, he said.

Honda is also planning to work to reduce its vehicle emissions to meet stricter standards. While Honda already offers the Civic-based Insight, Accord Hybrid, and a hybrid CR-V sold in the US (but not Canada), Gardner said that there would likely be one or two additions to the lineup, the AP reports. While he didn’t identify those possibilities, the Honda Pilot seems a likely candidate, along with the Odyssey minivan.

“We’ve got to now focus all of our energies in this direction in order to meet timelines,” he said, acknowledging that President Biden has been focused on zero emissions, not simply reducing them.

“We’re really good at a couple of things that seem to be going out of vogue today, so there’s no doubt that we have work to start moving quickly in the zero-emission direction,” Gardner said.

While electric vehicles made up only a small portion of sales last year, it’s expected to grow rapidly over the next few years as more and more offerings become available. While Honda clearly doesn’t want to miss out, its partnership to use GM’s Ultium powertrain should help it regain lost ground.
