With many European governments recently announcing their plans to clean up the air of their major cities it’s becoming quite clear that the motor industry is finding it necessary to invest in alternatives to fossil fuels. So it was no real surprise to receive news from Honda, up on the top floor of MotorMartin Towers, that they will use the 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show to reveal the next steps in their plan for electrification of the European car range.
The focus for the brand, Honda have informed MotorMartin, is that Frankfurt will be the world premiere of the Honda Urban EV Concept, setting the direction for a future production model. Alongside this debut, the CR-V Hybrid Prototype previews the European version of the all-new CR-V SUV.
Also featuring on the Honda stand will be the new-look Jazz supermini and the new diesel-powered variant of the tenth-generation Civic hatchback.
Honda Motor CEO, Takahiro Hachigo will unveil the Honda Urban EV Concept at the Honda Press Conference next Tuesday 12 September and MotorMartin can’t wait to see where Honda are going.
Where will you go?
