March 6, 2020 0 By autotimesnews

The Japanese automaker plans to launch the second all-electric car in Europe by 2022 to support its Honda e retro electric car.

Recall that the company will begin deliveries of Honda e in the summer of 2020. Moreover, the brand management is making big plans for the new product – it is expected that its sales per year will be at least 10 thousand units. The second electric car will be one of four new environmentally friendly vehicles that Honda will launch between 2021 and 2022, Honda European head Tom Gardner told reporters Tuesday without revealing any additional details.

Honda’s new hybrids will include the full hybrid version of the next-generation Civic compact car, due in 2021. The company is also evaluating the possibility of providing a hybrid version of Civic with a plug-in. It is expected that the small SUV HR-V will also combine a traditional ICE and an electric motor. In addition, Honda may import into Europe one of its hybrid models, which is available in Japan. It will be either an Accord sedan or a Clarity hybrid plugin.

Like other automakers, Honda is adding battery-powered cars and gas-electric hybrids to help the company achieve more stringent emission standards set by the European Commission.
