WAKO, Japan — U.S. dealers will miss out on Honda 's next electric car when it arrives this year. But something bigger and better may be on the way. Honda Motor Co. said last week it is planning a truly global electric vehicle platform to underpin larger EVs that are envisioned for the U.S

Honda is working up a dedicated electric-vehicle platform it says will underpin a range of future EVs, the first of which it promises will arrive in North America "before 2025."

Speaking to Automotive News at a corporate technology briefing in Japan, Honda powertrain boss Ayumu Matsuo said the new EV architecture will favour "smooth driving and highly efficient packaging."

In its most straightforward form, the platform will place the electric motor in the tail to power the rear wheels. But Honda says it will accept a variety of battery types and motors and allow for a front-mounted motor to offer AWD.

By 2025 , Honda plans to come up with cars with “level 4” standard automated driving functions, meaning they can drive themselves on highways and city roads under most situations. Achieving such capabilities will require artificial intelligence to detect traffic movements, along with a battery of

The as-yet-unannounced mainstream models that will use the new platform will follow the Honda E, a small EV hatchback that will soon be sold in small numbers in Europe and Japan.

While Honda's Matsuo-san offered no specifics about the vehicles that will use the company's new EV platform, he said he "believes it will meet the needs of customers who like our C- and D-segment models." That suggests Honda's focus is compact and mid-size vehicles, which correspond with those Euro-centric vehicle class designations.

Honda says that by 2030 it wants two-thirds of its global vehicle sales to be electrified models and 15 percent to be pure electrics. It is also aiming for 100 percent electrification in Europe by 2025.

Honda's current Canadian lineup includes three electrified models in the Accord Hybrid, Insight, and Clarity, the last being the brand's sole plug-in model. On the upscale Acura side, the NSX supercar is the hybrid flagship with 573 hp, while the MDX crossover offers a hybrid option.

The dashboard incorporates three additional screens – one for the instrument cluster and two for the camera-based mirrors. As cars get more and more technology, the size of the screen inside the cabin increases as the years go by. The 2020 Honda E is on another level since, despite its petite dimensions, the car comes with a dashboard that accommodates a total of five screens. The outer ones – measuring six inches each – show footage grabbed by the standard-fit side cameras, while the one in front of the driver is the all-digital instrument cluster with an 8.8-inch diagonal.
