All new Honda vehicles for sale in Europe by 2025 will be battery electric or hybrid, Honda Motor Co. said Tuesday at the press preview for the Geneva auto show.
Honda originally planned for electrified vehicles to make up two-thirds of its European sales under a strategy outlined two years ago.
"Since we made that first pledge in March 2017, the shift towards electrification has gathered pace considerably," Tom Gardner, senior vice president of Honda Motor Europe, said during Honda's press conference. "Environmental challenges continue to drive demand for cleaner mobility. Technology marches on unrelenting and people are starting to shift their view of the car itself," he added.
