Hybrid Type-R?

Tuesday, April 9th, 2019

Looking forward to 2025

Here at El Paso Honda we try to stay up to date with what we believe is the latest and greatest news when it comes to the auto industry. Whether its Nissan, Toyota, Ford, or Dodge we believe sharing this information is vital to making a decision when it comes to buying your next car. With that being said, we would like to start this blog off with some news coming from the Geneva International Motor Show. Every year in March in the Swiss city of Geneva.  Auto makers come together to unveil projects they’ve been working on and what they plan to accomplish in the coming years. This year Honda announced its plans to have all the cars in its European lineup available in hybrid or EV by 2025. This coming from an announcement only two years prior that two-thirds of it electrified sales would be the goal. With plans to go all in begs the question of whether or not that would in include the popular Type-R. With Tesla wearing the crown as far as Electric Vehicles go, it would not be surprising to find Honda including the TYPE-R, or even more so in the form of a NSX inspired system to rival Tesla’s Roadster. Tom Gardner, Honda Europe boss, said: “Since we made that first pledge in March 2017, the shift towards electrification has gathered pace considerably. Environmental challenges continue to drive demand for cleaner mobility. Technology marches on unrelenting and people are starting to shift their view of the car itself.”
