Honda's first EV for Europe to debut at Geneva show

Post by Rob » Wed Jan 09, 2019 4:21 pm

Honda will show a near-production concept of its Urbiq full-electric car at the Geneva auto show in March, a source close to the company said.

The Urbiq will be Honda's first battery-powered car to be sold in Europe and will go on sale early 2020. The full production version will debut at the Frankfurt auto show in September.

Honda often shows lightly disguised versions of production cars a year or so ahead of launch.

Honda said last year it expected to sell around 5,000 a year of the car in Europe in a full year of sales.

Honda wants two-thirds of its vehicles sold in Europe to be electrified by 2025. The brand is launching a hybrid version of the CR-V compact SUV in March, and include hybrid models when it next replaces the Jazz small car, HR-V small SUV and Civic compact.
