Honda is also developing an electric and plug-in hybrid. The company declares and begins their first field tests of numerous EV and plug-in hybrids in Japan. It seem to be the company is uncertain a bit in releasing their EVs and next generation of hybrids just because the company has sufficient time ahead, and because the company analysis and keep on eye to learn from the opponents mistake and attainment.
Honda demonstrates sample of an electric Fit and a plug-in hybrid version of the Inspire sedan. “For intensifying the use of EVs, the equilibrium between cost and performance is significant,” Honda President believed and stated. “It is still difficult to achieve the balance. But there may be markets in particular area such as rural areas where there is no availability of service station.”
Experiments of the Vehicle:
The field tests will be carried out in the Saitama and Kumamoto prefectures in Japan, and will use five EVs and five PHEVs. There has been information in the report that the Honda Company will also do experiment three of each in the US. soon. The whole test period is anticipated to last for approximately two years, a huge time in the car manufacturing industry. The company will ultimately arise with somewhat better and improved than Nissan’s and GM’s after that much testing.
Green technologies haven’t been beyond in this plan. “Assumption that an EV travels 40km per day, solar batteries will be supply and provided for power or electricity in this regard to four EV’s,” Company President said. In this way to charging the battery of the electric car with the help of solar panels is something that idea was anticipated for years.
