For global automakers, the current time has come to the node of change, the trend of fuel vehicles withdrawing from the stage of history has become more and more obvious, and the speed of transition to new energy electrification has accelerated significantly.
In terms of electrification, Tesla is already the “king of sales” of electric vehicles in the world, while Volkswagen is making an emergency transition and chasing Tesla. However, the attitude of Japanese cars towards electrification is not positive. Toyota and Honda have not launched new competitive pure electric models.
However, now that Honda is aware of the crisis, it has begun to pay attention to electrification reform at the strategic level, and even gave a time point for Honda to stop selling fuel vehicles.
On April 25, according to media reports, Honda CEO Toshihiro Mibu announced yesterday that it will make electric vehicle EV and fuel cell vehicle FCV account for 100% of sales by 2040 in order to achieve the goal of carbon neutrality.
Honda predicts that by 2030, 40% of its global sales will consist of battery electric vehicles and fuel cell vehicles, and then 80% in 2035, and 100% of sales by 2040.
In addition, Honda will also equip all cars with ADAS (Advanced Driver Assistance System) by 2030, and strive to achieve zero fatalities by 2050.
