This year’s Los Angeles Auto Show is shaping up to be one of the most significant in recent years and Honda has recently announced its addition to the mix.
An abbreviated press release furnished little information aside from the fact that Honda’s biggest boss, CEO Takanobu Ito, will be on hand to show an all-new electric vehicle concept and a new plug-in hybrid platform. While internal doubt remains on how the full-electric vehicle will fare during the niche’s formative years, Honda is preparing to market a production plug-in hybrid and all-electric car in Japan and the United States in 2012. We can only speculate on the full specifications of the EV concept, but more details should be arriving soon. We’re not holding out for an evolution of the JDM-cute EV-N concept first previewed during the 2009 Tokyo Motor Show though.
Mr. Ito’s presence will also mark the first time a Honda global chief has unveiled a worldwide vehicle at the L.A. show.
