Importantly, Honda has also announced that the production of the e Prototype will commence by the end of this year for which bookings shall open shortly in the global markets. USA spokesman Chris Naughton said in an emailed statement, "As a reminder on a global scale, we've set a target for two-thirds of Honda's total vehicle sales to be electrified by the year 2030", which the company announced in 2017. Tom Gardner, senior vice president of Honda Motor Europe, told the motoring press in Geneva: "Since we made that first pledge [for electrification] in March 2017, the shift towards electrification has gathered pace considerably". Environmental challenges continue to drive demand for cleaner mobility. After the launch of the CR-V hybrid early this year, the carmaker expects the full hybrid technology to play a key role in meeting its aims of 100 per cent electrification by 2025. Based on the 2017 Urban EV Concept, the e Concept is positioned to be an urban commuter when it hits the streets in 2020. And now at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show, the Japanese automobile manufacturer has unveiled a near production ready prototype that sticks to the original concept in terms of design and powertrain. We love the exterior of the Honda e Prototype for it has a nice retro-chic design. He says the USA arm has committed to "expanding electrification across most of our line up in the coming years, including light trucks".

It said it is to build a portfolio of energy management products and services to offer a comprehensive solution for EV customers and service operators throughout Europe, starting with agreements with two companies in particular; battery storage firm Moixa and EV charging solutions provider Ubitricity.
