WHY THE INTEREST IN HYBRID AND ELECTRIC CARS?
It’s all about the environment. Honda is dedicated to helping protect our planet and making sure we minimise pollution from our daily activities. Cleaner air, especially in our towns is vital for everyone’s health, but especially for our children, older people and those with health issues. Hybrid cars offer reduced tailpipe emissions; PHEVs, Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicles also offer a limited, electric-only range, enough for most people’s trip to work. 100% electric cars produce no tailpipe emissions whatsoever.
The UK government has also announced a ban on the sale of petrol and diesel cars from 2040, with plans to make that 2035 or even earlier, if possible.
