Tax relief for e:NY1?
With the disappearance of the E, Honda only has one fully electric model on its European menu: the e:NY1. The Honda e:NY1 doesn’t seem to have to pull the cart on its own for long. Honda is preparing a huge model offensive and the brand will already be showing some of this during the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas in January.
If everything goes according to plan, Honda will only sell fully electric cars or models with a fuel cell on board everywhere in the world from 2040. The brand will introduce no fewer than 30 new EVs worldwide until 2030. What exactly does Honda have ready for Europe? That is still unclear. In its previous plans for the future, the manufacturer mainly talked about what it will be doing in the EV field in the United States, Japan and China. During the CES in Las Vegas, Honda says it will give a glimpse of a new international electric model family. This may include one or more harbingers of EVs to appear in Europe.
Honda promises to show a new ‘global EV series’ during the CES and releases a teaser image of what is clearly a study model. So don’t count on Honda launching a series of production-ready EVs into the world in January. In the image we see part of an angular concept car. It will not be the first time that Honda shows one or more angular previews of new models. For example, it presented a set of angular show cars on the Shanghai exhibition floor in April and showed this equally angular e:N2 Concept in 2022. A year earlier – in 2021 – Honda also presented a set of study models with sharp corners and sleek creases to the light of day. It is likely that Honda in Europe will mainly focus on the introduction of new electric crossovers and SUV-like vehicles for the time being.
We will know more on January 9.
