By 2025, Honda will launch no less than 10 electric two-wheelers on the market, ranging from small scooters to motorcycles.
The goal for the Japanese brand is to sell 1 million of these electric models and reach 3.5 million units by 2030.
Honda has announced that the electric motorcycles will be destined for the European and Asian markets, but also that some of them will also be available in North America.
Also, don't expect too many high-performance models, as the slide released by Honda contains 11 silhouettes of potential electric models, only four of which don't look like mopeds.
Honda is developing a new platform called FUN and plans to launch three major electric models in the Japanese, European and American markets between 2024 and 2025. In addition, the Japanese company is working on a children's bike based on the same unit and battery.
However, Honda will continue to produce models with internal combustion engines, but has promised to be more environmentally friendly thanks to the use of ethanol-based E20 and E100 fuels.
Honda's ambitious plan
Honda's goal is that its motorcycles be carbon neutral by 2040 and that electric models will account for around 15% of motorcycle sales by 2030.
In his speech, Kohei Takeuchi, director, executive vice president and executive representative, and Yoshishige Nomura, Honda's general manager, also confirmed the ongoing development of new generation batteries that will power the brand's electric vehicles in the coming years.
It is also worth noting that, despite plans for electric motorcycles, Honda will continue to develop internal combustion engines.
The ICE models will not disappear from the market so quickly and we will still be able to enjoy the sound of the high speed bolted motor.
