Rather than present a bunch of flashy concept cars that never go into production, Honda decided to blow people away with its plan for automotive domination at the recent Detroit Auto Show. Those plans had everything to do with how Hondas get around.
In the gasoline department, Honda released a few details on an entirely new family of engines. Without saying which exact models would be receiving the new engine, the automaker said it would be a four-cylinder VTEC turbo engine. Honda is spending a mere $340 million to get the engines made at its Anna, Ohio plant. We should see the new machine in action by the end of 2015.
In the alternative fuel department, Honda did indeed present a concept at the Detroit Show. The FCV is a sleek, very futuristic-looking fuel-cell vehicle with a projected range is 300 miles. Best of all, its fill-up time only takes about three to five minutes.
That wasn’t all! Honda divulged plans to develop both a battery-electric vehicle as well as a plug-in hybrid in the near future. We at Avery Greene Honda are excited about the future of the Honda Developments Revealed in Detroit.
