Vehicle Electrification – Benefits and Technologies | Honda

Electrified Technologies

Honda Batteries and Charging

Honda electrified vehicles are easy to charge and powered by batteries that are just as reliable as the vehicles themselves.

Driving Innovation

The Most Fuel-Efficient Automaker in America

Thanks to our electrified vehicles—along with the rest of our highly efficient lineup—Honda was named the most fuel-efficient automaker in America* by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.

A Landmark Achievement

The innovative Honda Clarity becomes the first vehicle family in the automotive industry to offer fuel-cell, electric and plug-in hybrid technology options.

Plugging In

Honda continues to expand its plug-in offerings with the all-electric Fit EV and Accord Plug-In.

Honda + Hydrogen

Honda launches the zero-emission FCX Clarity, named “the most important car in 100 years” by Top Gear. The FCX Clarity, the vehicle that started the Clarity legacy, uses fuel-cell technology to create electricity from hydrogen, the most abundant element in the universe.

Insight into the Future

A culmination of 50 years of Honda research, the 2000 Honda Insight was the first hybrid vehicle sold to consumers in the U.S. Its lightweight, aerodynamic body and unique hybrid motor system helped it receive an unprecedented 70 mpg highway rating*.

A Natural Alternative

The Civic GX (Natural Gas) becomes the first and only fully assembly-line-produced CNG passenger car to run on a very low-emission alternative fuel, helping reduce our dependency on oil as well as fuel costs.

Going All-Electric

Honda introduces the EV Plus, the first all-electric production vehicle powered by advanced nickel-metal hydride batteries. Innovations such as its electric motor and battery would go on to influence later electrified vehicles, such as the Insight and FCX Clarity.

A Breakthrough in Engine Technology

The Civic introduces the CVCC engine, a major breakthrough in reducing emissions, lowering vehicle costs and increasing fuel efficiency. CVCC technology was later incorporated into the Accord, Prelude and CR-X.
