Honda has exhibited the world premiere of its all-new SUV model, CR-V Hybrid, at Auto Shanghai 2017. Equipped with the Honda Sport Hybrid i-MMD two-motor hybrid system, the CR-V Hybrid realizes both dynamic driving performance and excellent environmental performance at the same time.
Moreover, the CR-V Hybrid comes loaded with a full complement of features including the Honda SENSING suite of advanced safety and driver-assistive technologies. The CR-V Hybrid is scheduled to go on sale in China in the second half of 2017 from Dongfeng Honda Automobile Co., Ltd.
In addition to the CR-V Hybrid, Honda will continue to accelerate introductions of new products toward electrification. In 2018, Honda is planning to begin sales of a new electric vehicle which will be developed as a China-exclusive model.
Takahiro Hachigo, President, Chief Executive Officer and Representative Director of Honda Motor Co., Ltd. said, “With a goal to make two-thirds of our global automobile sales from electrified vehicles by around 2030, Honda will pursue the development of electrification technologies more speedily.
"In China, where dynamic change is happening, we will continue proposing new forms of mobility products by utilizing our global and local development capability to the fullest extent and quickly introducing new technologies such as electrification and intelligence technologies.”
