Honda is one of the most famous and oldest Japanese auto-moto brands, which turns 73 this year. In Russia, the company has a small, but quite loyal audience to the brand. And despite this, Honda still announced the termination of official deliveries to Russia from 2022, focusing on the US and Chinese markets. This is primarily due to the upcoming large-scale electrification of the model range, which is relevant for the European Union, China and the United States. We will tell you separately about the strategy for the electrification of Honda. And now, with regard to Russia.
So, already next year, if anyone wants to buy a #honda car for himself, then most likely he will be forced to do it on his own (which is quite problematic if restrictions on movement persist) or order a car from companies specializing in this type of service. … And with a high degree of probability it will be a new or used car from Europe. As for our direction, today in Europe 4 hybrids are officially sold (JAZZ, CR-V, HR-V and NSX), and 1 fully electric car — #honda e.

I am also pleased with the presence of an outlet in the cabin for
The next interesting point is the location of the charging port. It is located not on the sides, like gas tank hatches, and not in front in the area of the false radiator grille, like in many electric cars. The charging port in the Honda E is located at the top of the front, in the plane of the hood. This is a rather unusual and interesting solution.
