Honda Teases Radical EV Design Series After Dumping Plans With GM

The future is just around the corner; or, at least CES 2024 is, where many companies and automakers hope to showcase the future of their technologies at the annual consumer electronics expo. For 2024, Honda has announced plans to introduce a new lineup of all-electric vehicles for the world that should clear up its confusing global EV strategy for everyone. Here’s what we can expect from the Japanese giant at the upcoming show.

Details are mum for now, with Honda only confirming that it will debut an “all-new global Honda electric vehicle (EV) series.” The first teaser image of one of the vehicles features a wedge-shaped silhouette with the glass windshield blending into the front structure of the vehicle, with seemingly hidden or flush lighting and no clear cooling vents or traditional fascia design apparent. The image also shows the front wheel with a geometric blade pattern and low-profile rubber tire. One version of the image included in this article has been enhanced in photoshop for more detail.

So far, we only have that image and a date for the debut on January 9, 2024 in Las Vegas, Nevada. Honda also announced that it will introduce a total of 30 new EVs by 2030 at an ambitious sales goal of moving a volume of two million EVs annually, and will only sell zero-emission vehicles by 2040, with global carbon neutrality achieved for all products and corporate activities by 2050.

This new lineup of EVs introduced at 2024’s CES is expected to be different from the upcoming Honda Prologue EV SUV, which is a badge-engineered SUV based on the Chevy Blazer EV from General Motors. Further plans to jointly develop future “affordable” EV models based on GM’s Ultium technology from Honda have since been scrapped, with this new CES lineup likely set to serve as the replacement for that plan. The new series is also expected to be a departure from the Chinese-market e:N2 concept sedan, and the European Honda e hatchback EV. So, it should be all new, essentially.
