Honda made a bold statement at CES, revealing its vision for the future of electric cars through the ‘Honda 0 Series,’ a groundbreaking generation of electric vehicles (EVs). Scheduled for market launch in North America in 2026, the 0 Series introduces two design concepts – a sleek saloon and a futuristic van – showcasing Honda’s commitment to innovation.
The saloon, influenced by dynamic sports car designs, boasts a strikingly low profile, while the Space-Hub van captivates with its van dimensions and a forward-looking aesthetic. Honda is set to revolutionize its next-gen EVs with electric axles comprising a motor, inverter, and transmission.
These vehicles are designed to feature lightweight batteries, enabling rapid charging from 15 to 80 percent in just ten to 15 minutes. Honda also aims to minimize battery capacity loss to less than ten percent over ten years of use.
In pursuit of efficiency, Honda adopts a development approach called “Thin, Light, and Wise.” The ‘Honda 0 Series’ models prioritize power conversion efficiency, lightweight, high-density battery packs, and exceptional aerodynamic performance.
Emphasizing the significance of a “thin EV platform,” the aim is to achieve a low floor height and superior aerodynamics, contributing to enhanced overall performance.
The brand-new H-brand logo unveiled at CES symbolizes Honda’s commitment to rethinking electric mobility. The zero in the ‘Honda 0 Series’ name signifies a complete reimagining of electric cars from the ground up, creating a new starting point for the next generation.
The zero also represents Honda’s ambitious goal of “zero environmental impact” throughout a vehicle’s lifecycle, extending to the company’s activities, and a vision for “zero traffic collision fatalities.”
Honda plans to kick off the market launch of the initial 0 Series model in North America in 2026, followed by releases in Japan, Asia, Europe, Africa, the Middle East, and South America. With a target to achieve 100 percent electric and fuel cell vehicle sales by 2040, Honda is setting the stage for a transformative era in sustainable mobility.
