Honda plans to make battery-electric and fuel cell electric vehicles represent 100% of its vehicle sales by 2040, progressing from sales of 40% by 2030 and 80% by 2035.

Toward these targets, Honda also plans to launch a series of new EV models based on a new e:Architecture, beginning from the second half of the decade. These plans for North America are in line with Honda's new global and regional targets, which were announced today by Honda global president & CEO Toshihiro Mibe, as part of the company's renewed commitment to advances in safety and environmental technology. In making the announcement, Mibe said that Honda sees the reduction of the company's environmental impact and realization of safety advances to protect human lives as the two major challenges facing the company.
