Honda describes Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicles as the “technical bridge to a zero emissions world”.
The company claims its next PHEV, which will share a platform with the Clarity, is focused on being able to run on battery power only for longer, with the engine kicking-in to make nasty old emissions far less often.
Honda is claiming an EV driving distance of around 70km for its upcoming PHEV, plus an ability to work in electric-only mode, even at highway speeds.
It’s not far off, but this new and as yet unnamed Honda PHEV will arrive in 2017.
