Honda Motor Company
Based on its vision of "Blue Skies for our Children," Honda is working to help advance technologies that can help address society's environmental and energy concerns. Honda’s 'portfolio' approach encompasses viable alternatives to petroleum, including battery electric, plug-in hybrid and hydrogen-powered fuel cell electric vehicles, natural gas-powered and more fuel-efficient gasoline-powered vehicles, together with the expanded deployment of affordable hybrids.
Honda has been leading the development of new electromotive technologies, including the first EV leases in California (1997 Honda EV Plus), the retail introduction of America's first hybrid (1999 Honda Insight), delivery of the first fuel-cell electric vehicle in the U.S. (2002 Honda FCX) and four generations of the Civic Natural Gas (first introduced in 1998). In 2012, Honda began leasing the EPA-rated 118 MPGe Fit EV electric vehicle, followed by the EPA-rated 115 MPGe Accord Plug-In in January of 2013.
The USABC seeks to promote long-term R&D within the domestic electrochemical energy storage (EES) industry and to maintain a consortium that engages automobile manufacturers, EES manufacturers, the National Laboratories, universities, and other key stakeholders.
