Honda reveal new EV Series for 2026

  • In 2026, Honda will launch the “Honda 0 Series,” a new EV series for global markets, starting from the North American market
  • Honda presented the world premiere of Honda 0 Series concept models, Saloon and Space-Hub, at the CES 2024
  • A new “H mark” that represents Honda’s commitment for the next-generation EVs also made its world debut
  • Honda 0 Series is being developed with a new approach – Thin, Light, and Wise – to offer five core values.

At CES 2024, Honda unveiled their bold vision for the future with the Honda 0 Series, a new line of EVs launching globally in 2026. But forget clunky, boxy EVs of the past - these sleek concepts are straight out of science fiction, packed with cutting-edge tech and a focus on efficiency.

Flagship Saloon: A Sci-Fi Dream Machine

First up is the Saloon, the series' flagship model. Imagine a low-slung sports car with a sci-fi twist. It features a panoramic windshield, a sporty silhouette, and a futuristic yoke steering wheel instead of a traditional one. Large screens and tech abound, offering a glimpse into a truly connected driving experience.

Space-Hub: Your Room With a View

The Space-Hub takes a different approach, prioritising spaciousness and flexibility. Think of it as your portable living room on wheels. Large windows and modular seating create a versatile interior that can adapt to your needs, whether you're hauling cargo, taking a family trip, or simply enjoying the scenery.

Thin, Light, and Wise: Rethinking EVs

The Honda 0 Series isn't just about looks - it's about rethinking the entire EV experience. Their "thin, light, and wise" approach focuses on efficiency and sustainability. Honda aims to:

  • Reduce charging time significantly: Charging from 15% to 80% could take just 10-15 minutes, a huge improvement over current EVs.
  • Boost battery longevity: They strive to limit battery degradation to less than 10% in 10 years, ensuring your EV performs its best for years to come.
  • Pack more punch with less weight: High-density, lightweight battery packs aim to provide ample range while minimizing the car's overall weight.

A New Era of EVs Dawns

These are just concepts, but they offer a tantalising glimpse into what Honda has in store for the future of electric vehicles. The Honda 0 Series promises a driving experience that's not just about getting from point A to point B, but about seamlessly integrating your car into your life, with a focus on efficiency, technology, and comfort.

Concept models that represent the Honda 0 Series at CES 2024 – Saloon and Space-Hub 


Honda Saloon​

The Saloon is the flagship concept model of the Honda 0 Series, which embodies the “Thin, Light, and Wise” approach. The dedicated EV architecture extends the degree of freedom in design and elevates the M/M concept in the era of EVs. The low height, sporty styling that sets the Saloon apart from other EVs at first glance realizes both a fascinating design and an interior space that is more spacious than people can imagine based on the exterior appearance. Moreover, the instrument panel features a human-machine interface (HMI) that enables simple and intuitive operations, realizing a sophisticated and seamless user interface (UI). With an exhilarating visibility and intuitive UI, the Saloon strives to provide a fun driving experience that resonates with the driver’s sensibility.

With the adoption of steer-by-wire and the further advancement of the motion management system, including posture control, that Honda has amassed through the development of original robotics technologies, the Saloon aims to realize control at the will of the driver in a variety of driving situations. As the flagship model of the Honda 0 Series, the Saloon pursues the ultimate “joy of driving” in the EV era. Furthermore, including the use of sustainable materials for the interior and exterior, the Saloon is being developed as a unique model that resonates with users and the natural environment.

Honda Space-Hub​

Under the common design language of the Honda 0 Series, the Space-Hub was developed under the theme of “augmenting people’s daily lives.” Realizing a spacious cabin and excellent visibility based on the “Thin, Light, and Wise” development approach, the Space-Hub offers a flexible space that immediately accommodates what the users want to do, and becomes a hub that connects people to people and people to society, generating mutual resonance with each other.

Honda 0 series FAQ


Will the Honda 0 EV series come to the UK?

In 2026, Honda will begin introducing the first model of the Honda 0 Series globally, starting from North America, then to Japan, Asia, Europe, Africa and the Middle East and South America.

Is the Honda 0 series electric?

The Honda 0 Series is a new EV series that symbolises how Honda is undergoing a major transformation in line with its Global Brand Slogan and electrification policy. The series name represents Honda’s determination in taking on this challenge of developing new EV series by going back to the starting point of Honda as an automaker and creating completely new EVs from “zero.” With this new EV series, Honda will strive to further advance its “M/M concept” and the “joy of driving,” which Honda values in its car making, and take the “joy and freedom of mobility” to even greater heights.

What is the range and performance of the new Honda EV series?

Based on the electrification technology Honda has amassed in the development of hybrid vehicles and other areas, energy efficiency is pursued to achieve high electricity efficiency performance. In particular, Honda 0 Series models will feature e-Axles*2 with excellent power conversion efficiency and packaging, lightweight, high-density battery packs and excellent aerodynamic performance, targeting a sufficient range while minimizing the battery capacity loaded on the vehicle.

Moreover, to address concerns about “charging time” and “battery degradation,” which have been the challenge facing the popularization of EVs, Honda 0 Series models will offer stress-free charging performance and worry-free battery performance that minimizes degradation over many years of use. For the 0 Series models to be launched in the second half of the 2020s, fast-charging 15% to 80% will be shortened to about 10-15 minutes. In the meantime, by applying battery system control technology refined based on a massive amount of driving data from over 1 million units of Honda electrified vehicles, Honda is striving to limit the degradation of battery capacity (range) to less than 10% after 10 years of use.

What will the new Honda EV models look like?

The design concept is “The Art of Resonance.” Under the theme of a “resonance with the environment, society and users,” Honda will offer sustainable mobility products that evoke resonance in people who see them and expand the possibilities of people’s daily life.

Honda is developing the new EV series to be 'thin, light & wise'. What does that mean?

In developing the Honda 0 Series, the development team went back to the starting point of Honda and reconsidered what kind of EVs Honda wants to create in the coming era. Honda will strive to create new value for EVs by transcending the constraints of being a “thick and heavy” vehicle due to an increase in battery capacity the vehicle has to carry to secure enough range, as well as a large body and platform necessary to accommodate such battery capacity. Honda describes this new approach to EV development as “Thin, Light, and Wise.”

Thin: Augmenting design potential, including styling with a low vehicle height, and realizing excellent aerodynamic performance by utilizing a “thin” dedicated EV platform to create a low floor height.

Light: Realizing sporty driving and electricity efficiency performance that defy the established beliefs people have about EVs through Honda original technologies created by going back to the starting point of Honda as an automaker.

Wise: Realizing Honda original software-defined mobility products by leveraging the knowledge Honda has amassed to date and by making cars wiser through the advancement of intelligent technologies.

Honda EVs, which will be built based on this development approach and feature a dedicated EV architecture, will offer the following five core values:

1) Artistic design that evokes resonance
2) AD/ADAS that ensures safety and peace of mind
3) A “space” for people made possible by the internet of things and connected technologies
4) The joy of driving with the feeling of oneness with the vehicle
5) Outstanding electricity efficiency performance
