Producing environmentally friendly vehicles is a top priority for Honda. This is why, for over two decades, Honda has been trying to improve on its electric vehicle segment. And over the years, it has made great strides when it comes to creating innovative and efficient EVs and hybrid vehicles. To keep up the great work, Honda has an exciting addition to add to its electric lineup that will be available in the near future.
Why Buy an Electric Vehicle?
You have probably heard that electric vehicles can save you money at the pumps. And while that is certainly true, there are many other benefits of owning an electric vehicle
Normal combustion engines that are found on gas-powered cars can release a lot of toxic chemicals into the air that can negatively impact the environment and are also bad for our health. A hybrid vehicle releases fewer harmful emissions than a traditional gas-powered engine. And an all-electric vehicle produces no harmful emissions. So, if you are looking for a way to reduce your carbon footprint, buying an all-electric vehicle or a hybrid vehicle is definitely the way to go.
2.Tons of Variety
Honda will soon have a wider range of electric vehicles that are able to suit everyone’s needs and budget. Whether you are looking for a spacious SUV that is able to fit the whole family, or you want a fast and efficient all-electric sedan, we are sure to have just what you are looking for.
In Canada, not only can you save at the pumps with an electric vehicle, but you can also receive cash incentives when you choose to buy or lease a vehicle that has reduced emission. Canada offers the Incentives for Zero-Emission Vehicles (iZEV) program that will give you cash incentives for purchasing vehicles that have all-electric engines, hybrid engines, hydrogen fuel cells, and more.
4.Added Peace of Mind
When you purchase a hybrid vehicle from Honda, you get the comfort of knowing that your battery is protected for an extended period of time. Every Honda Hybrid vehicle comes with an 8-year warranty on the high-voltage battery.
Honda Has Many Electrified Vehicles to Choose From
When it comes to electrified technologies, Honda is in a league of its own. There is a wide range of electrified options to choose from, which include:
- Hydrogen Fuel Cell – The electricity is generated by hydrogen.
- Hybrid – Uses a combination of gas-powered and electric motors. This means that you don’t have to rely entirely on a battery, but you can still get a great fuel economy rating.
- All-Electric Vehicles – Are powered exclusively by an electric motor. The high-powered battery can last for hours and comes with a regenerative braking system that helps to restore some of the lost energy.
- Plug-In Hybrid – Powered by a battery that automatically switches to the gas-powered engine when the battery starts to run low on power.
Honda is the leader in electric technologies. Because we offer so many choices, you are sure to find the right technology to fit your needs.
