Honda to Add New Hybrid Model and Expand Systems to Light Trucks

Honda to Add New Hybrid Model and Expand Systems to Light Trucks

By Philly Murtha, January 10, 2017

Honda made news at the press previews for the 2017 North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) in Detroit this week by announcing that it will introduce a new hybrid model in 2018 that will be produced in the United States. As part of its rollout of more electric and hybrid electric vehicles, Honda also will expand the use of its 2-motor hybrid powertrain to its light-truck lineup.

Officials from Honda said that more than one-half of all new models to be introduced during the next two years will be “electrified” as part of the company’s plan for carbon-free mobility. By 2050, Honda still plans to cut in half CO2 emissions from 2000 levels.

Honda claims the Accord Hybrid is the most fuel-efficient of any midsize sedan in the U.S. market.
