In addition to the Honda E, Honda is working on a second EV that will launch in 2022. Details are slim at this point, but the announcement reinforces Honda's message that EVs and hybrids are key to its future.

Honda talked about this when they announced the new 4th gen FIT. One new EV model and one new "stylish SUV" model(presumably hybrid). The other 2 could be hybrid next gen Civic and HRV.

Was hoping to track continued news on the topic of new EV model in this dedicated thread ongoing (separate from Fit/hybrids), until the new EV launches in 2022.

Honda Europe Senior VP, Tom Gardner, confirmed this past week that a second Honda EV will launch in Europe between 2021 and 2022 (though further details weren't provided). This will be the 2nd of four new electrified Honda's due to launch between 2021 and 2022.

Given the accelerated/aggressive timing for European requirements, more details about the 2nd Honda EV are expected later this year.

Current Status
  • The CR-V hybrid, launched in Europe in 2018, now accounts for 60 percent of sales.
  • The Jazz (Fit) hybrid will begin selling this summer.
Later This Year
  • #1 - The Honda E (138 mi range) starts delivering this summer, with expected European sales of 10k units annually. No US sales are planned at this time.
Future Electrification by 2022
  • #2 - A second Honda EV to be announced later this year and launch next year.
  • #3 - A full hybrid version of the next-gen Civic is coming in 2021. (A Civic plug-in hybrid is also possible but TBD.) --> ...clue to the fate of the G4 Insight?
  • #4 - A full hybrid version of the HR-V compact SUV on TBD timing.
The Accord Hybrid and Clarity PHEV may also get imported to Europe. Honda's hydrogen models are being put on hold.

Meanwhile back in the US, Honda isn't expected to get its first pure EV model until 2025...
