Honda is creating a corporate unit dedicated to electrification

Some immediately jumped on the electric bandwagon, launching new models and presenting recurring concepts, while others have instead adopted a more cautious approach. Honda is more of the second type, but now Frtry to get by announcing the creation of a new corporate unit dedicated to electricity distribution.

Changes to the company’s organization will take effect on April 1 e they will manage the power distribution efforts in several product lines Honda, including cars and motorcycles.

The good news for Japanese manufacturers is that they have the resources to invest in developing electric vehicle technology. And those who may not have it, such as Nissan and Mitsubishi, can instead draw on technologies available thanks toalliance with Renault.
