Honda had decidedly made the promise that all of their sales by 2040 will be entirely electric vehicles. Now with the likelihood of fuel cell hydrogen becoming more and more of a possibility, the new CEO, Toshihiro Mibe is still thinking about some of the goals that the automaker should be interested in meeting.
In his words, Mibe said, “Honda will strive to increase the ratio of battery-electric vehicles (EVs) and fuel cell electric vehicles (FCVs) within overall unit sales in all major markets of electrification combined to 40% by 2030, to 80% by 2035, and then to 100% globally by 2040.”
Honda has specific plans for each market as well. In North America, for example, there’s a reach for EV and FCV units. By many percentages. This differs throughout all of the Earth as various areas are exposing themselves to different hybrid-electric vehicles. They very well could electrify all of Japan soon enough. And soon after, the whole globe will be in a perpetual shock.
