Honda Debuts China EV Brand and Concept Car
Honda Motor Co. says it will launch a production version of its new all-electric concept car later this year in China under a new sub-brand called Everus.
The partners provided no details about the concept model, which appears to be based on Honda’s HR-V subcompact crossover vehicle. In addition to traditional sales, the production Everus EV will be available for rent through Reachstar, a Chinese carsharing startup that is partially owned by Honda.
The engineers at Munro & Associates have taken a perfectly sound BMW i3 and taken it apart. Completely apart. And they are impressed with what they’ve discovered about how the EV is engineered.
The historic plant has built—and is building—a lot of cars in its 70-year run of commercial vehicle production. Today, with the e-Golf and the GTE, it is making what are arguably the most-advanced Volkswagens out there.
