In a tantalizing sneak peek, Honda has released a teaser image of its upcoming global series of electric vehicles (EVs), set to be officially unveiled at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas on January 4th, 2024. The Japanese automaker promises a significant transformation and is gearing up to showcase key technologies driving its foray into the electric mobility landscape.
The teaser image provides a glimpse of what’s to come, featuring a sleek, sloping rear section of a car. Notably absent are traditional tail lights or a bumper, hinting at a design departure from conventional automotive norms. The wheel covering boasts lined triangles, and expansive glass panels, illuminated with purple lighting, add an air of futuristic sophistication.
Honda’s current electric vehicle lineup includes the compact Honda e city car, available in Europe and Asia, and the eagerly anticipated Prologue SUV, slated for release in North America. The performance-oriented Acura ZDX from Honda’s luxury brand is also on the horizon. However, the automaker aims to make a more substantial impact on the electric vehicle market.
Honda’s ambitious targets include the introduction of 30 new EV models by 2030, with an ambitious sales goal of 2 million units. The company is resolute in achieving 100% zero-emissions auto sales by 2040 and aspires to attain carbon neutrality across all products and corporate activities by 2050.
While Honda is charging ahead with its electrification strategy, the journey has not been without hurdles. The recent cancellation of plans with General Motors to develop an affordable EV lineup underscores the challenges in the rapidly evolving automotive landscape. Additionally, setbacks in autonomous technology were experienced when Cruise, GM’s autonomous unit and a Honda investment, suspended public operations following an incident involving a pedestrian and one of their driverless vehicles.
The CES event on January 4th, 2024, at 10:30 AM PT, promises to reveal the full scope of Honda’s global EV series. Enthusiasts and industry observers are eagerly anticipating more details about the showcased models and the cutting-edge technologies that will define Honda’s electric future.
Honda’s venture into the electric vehicle space takes a bold step forward with the imminent unveiling of its global EV series. As the automotive industry undergoes a seismic shift towards sustainability, CES 2024 is poised to be a pivotal moment for Honda, offering a closer look at the future of mobility from this renowned automaker.
