Honda has always been at the forefront of technology and is a major player in the world of automotive solutions. Their recent significant development has been the introduction of electric vehicles onto the market and products and services supporting their sustainability.
Unveiled at the 2018 International CES, Honda showcases their brand new project, the Honda PCX Electric scooter and the replaceable batteries that can be standardized across all their EVs’ churning inside their factories in the future.
Honda puts its Elecrtic future on stands at the Tokyo Motor show.
There is no denial in the fact that people will eventually stop filling their vehicles with liquefied dinosaurs and shift to electric. Not because they’ll like it but because there won’t be an option in the future.

Honda, with a fanbase of 28 million customers all around the world, is just doing that and have showcased their take on this challenge at the ongoing Tokyo Motor Show which includes the Honda PCX Electric, the Honda PCX Hybrid and the Honda Riding Assist-e.
