Honda Shuts Off Natural Gas Vehicles, Charges Up for More Hybrids and EVs
The News Wheel
Honda is phasing out its natural gas vehicles, in lieu of developing more hybrids, electric cars and fuel cell vehicles.
A hydrogen-powered Honda FCV should be arriving next year, and the company is also developing a next-generation, two-motor hybrid system for a new Accord Hybrid that’s slated for 2018. There’s also a new battery-electric car, a three-motor hybrid system, and a plug-in hybrid in the works, American Honda Motor Co. executive VP John Mendel said at a recent press conference, according to Auto News.
Honda’s “developing an extensive new generation of electrified vehicles,” said Mendel, in the hopes that the fuel cell vehicle, battery-electric car, and plug-in hybrids “will become a mainstream volume pillar for the Honda brand.”
