Speaking at a news conference last Friday (April 23), Toshihiro Mibe said:   "I believe it is the responsibility of an automaker to achieve our carbon-free goal on a 'tank-to-wheel' basis."    Toshihiro Mibe expects battery (or fuel-cell powered) Honda’s will account for 40% of all North American vehicle sales by 2030, while 80% of all Honda vehicles sold in North America will be battery-electric (or fuel-cell powered) by 2035.  In addition, Honda also plans to be selling electric (or fuel-cell vehicles) by 2040 – entirely in China and Japan.  Fuel cell electric vehicles are powered by hydrogen, emitting only water vapor and warm air – producing no tailpipe emissions.   
 
The plan for increasing Honda’s EV lineup will involve a new electric-vehicle platform to be build, along with developing hydrogen-powered fuel cell vehicles, in collaboration with General Motors, who have also set 2035 as their goal for making the vast majority of their vehicles electric.
