TOKYO: Later this year, Honda's compact and fully electric modular Honda E will go on sale - but, only in Europe.
Markets where larger vehicles like sedans and SUVs reign supreme will be left out.
But a report by Automotive News published Thursday claimed "something bigger and better may be on the way."
Honda said it would introduce a modular electric vehicle platform designed for larger vehicles, those that the company will sell to the US and Chinese markets.
Honda outlined its intention to make this platform "truly global;" in theory, it will work for a wide range of vehicle segments despite varying body sizes, shapes, and powertrain architectures.
While the cute and compact urban Honda E won't make it stateside, its limited range would likely not prove useful in a country with such large distances between cities. EV models using the upcoming EV platform will likely start hitting the American market around 2025.
