Honda showcases new EV direction in Las Vegas

One of, if not, the biggest technology showcases has opened in Las Vegas, Nevada. The Consumer Electronics Show - aka CES - brings together lots of the world's most recognisable brands under one enormous roof for them to launch and showcase all the new tech they're working on.

It's an event where there are announcements from gaming to space travel, and AI to automotive. And everything in between.

Many automotive manufacturers tend to use the show to reveal the direction of technology coming into their vehicles rather than to launch new models (that's usually reserved for the large dedicated motor shows) however slightly bucking the trend this year is Honda.

The Japanese carmaker is using CES 2024 to launch its new 0 Series - the name given to the brand's next generation of pure electric vehicles including an entirely new Honda logo which will be used on these vehicles. And in Las Vegas consumers and the world's media can get up close and personal with two concept EVs - the concept saloon and the concept Space-Hub.

Honda 0 Series Saloon 2024

Honda 0 Series saloon

This concept saloon is unlike any Honda ever produced. The brand is aiming to produce a low profile and highly efficient car - with excellent aerodynamics - and plenty of interior space for its occupants.

While details haven't been fully released, Honda has confirmed that production 0 Series vehicles will be built on a new, dedicated platform giving greater flexibility on design and placement of a vehicle's battery pack.

Best described as a people carrier, the Space-Hub concept showcases a flexible, large interior electric vehicle that has the space to accommodate six or seven adults. The large volume rear of the vehicle on show has rows 2 and 3 facing each other.

Honda is promising a flexible space which is configurable to the users needs. We'd even suggest that a production version of the Space-Hub could also be used as a light commercial vehicle, in a similar way to the Volkswagen ID Buzz.

Thin, light and wise - Honda's new mantra

Honda has described its new approach to EV development as based on the above 3 words. This means that Honda will produce EVs with excellent aerodynamics to improve efficiency, as well as develop an EV architecture that is thinner to allow for a lower floor height.

Light - again a focus on building electric vehicles to be as efficient as possible.

Lastly, wise- is a nod to bringing the whole of Honda's A-game to the world of automotive - don't forget about Honda's many development projects in the world of robotics and future tech.

Production Honda 0 Series electric vehicles are expected to start launching from 2026 onwards, with North America expected to be the first market to get them. However, this is a global program so we're sure to see future 0 Series Honda's on UK roads in the next few years.
