Honda Motor Co. plans to develop an electric car to debut in the United States by around 2015 as tighter environmental regulations push demand for zero-emission vehicles, the Nikkei newspaper said and Reuters reported.
A spokesperson for the company, Japan’s No. 2 automaker, said it was developing an electric car but had not decided when to launch it, the news service said. The company also declined to comment on the Nikkei business daily’s report, without sources, that a prototype of the car would be unveiled at the Tokyo Motor Show in October, the story said.
The vehicle is expected to be around the size of a minicar, the Nikkei said Saturday. Nissan Motor Co., Japan’s third biggest automaker, unveiled its electric car Leaf earlier this month with plans to begin selling it in the United States, Japan and Europe toward the end of 2010, the story said.
