New Honda EV On The Horizon

Honda currently features a total of five hybrid and alternative-fuel-powered vehicles in its lineup. Starting next year, it'll likely add more.

Honda gave the world its first official look at an all-new EV Concept and Plug-In Hybrid Concept at the Frankfurt Motor Show, earlier this month. Both remain unnamed at this time. However, many have taken to calling the EV Concept the 'Honda Fit EV Concept' for the fact it looks like the Fit and uses an identical five-seat layout.

"Honda has brought the Honda EV Concept battery electric vehicle and platform for a midsize plug-in hybrid vehicle to the Frankfurt Motor Show," said the automaker. "The concepts are displayed as part of Honda's 'Road to Zero Emissions', showing the current technology of hybrids alongside near-future technology of plug-in vehicles and the ultimate goal of the Fuel Cell Electric Vehicles, like the FCX Clarity."1

As gas prices continue to stay high in the greater Elkhart area, as they do elsewhere in the country, Gurley Leep Honda thought you might like to learn a little bit more about these imminent Honda vehicles designed to partially and completely eliminate trips to the pump.
