The new Honda Clarity Plug-In Hybrid will go on sale in Canada this year, Honda Canada recently announced. What’s more, the company will introduce a new dedicated hybrid model made in North America in 2018.
This is part of Honda’s plan to expand its portfolio of electrified vehicles. Some alternative fuel models will even be added to the light truck lineup.
“Honda Canada’s new product launch cadence will reflect the U.S. strategy as we prepare to introduce all-new alternative fuel vehicles to the Canadian market,” said Jean-Marc Leclerc, Vice President of Sales and Marketing at Honda Canada Inc.
Honda has set a global target for two-thirds of all sales to come from electrified models by 2030 and to halve its total company CO2 emissions from 2000 levels by 2050.
The new dedicated hybrid vehicle will utilize Honda’s innovative two-motor hybrid system currently deployed in the Accord Hybrid.
