Honda’s Electric Future Is Something to Believe In

2016 Honda Fit - Fort Smith, AR
Honda envisions a greener future where EVs rule the road.

By 2030, Honda projects that partially or fully electric cars will make up a full two-thirds of its total global sales – which is a pretty big claim considering that partially- and fully-electric car sales currently only account for 5% of Honda’s worldwide total.

So, what does Honda’s electric future mean for you? Besides a cleaner, less polluted planet and less money spent at the pump, not much. Around the globe, automakers and governments alike are looking to find ways to reduce emissions and pollutants. The best solution to this problem is electric transportation.

Honda’s electric future might sound a little bit (or a lotta bit) like science fiction, but they’re not the only ones with the heads out of the dirt (because that’s where oil comes from—get it?). Toyota has recently predicted that by the year 2050, gas and diesel vehicles of any kind will be kaput; if anything, Honda’s “two-thirds by 2030” estimation is playing it safe.

Electric is the way the world is turning, and there’s no denying that anymore. Luckily, Honda is already ahead of the curve when it comes to all-electric, hybrid, and plug-in technology.
