Honda Canada Getting Charged up for EVs

Honda Canada will have level two electric chargers at nearly two-thirds of its dealer network by the end of this year.

Instead of waiting until they have an EV or plug-in hybrid on the lot to sell, 152 Honda Canada dealers are getting proactive about infrastructure. Those dealers have committed to at least two level two chargers as part of the goal.

“The investment by our dealer network is an indication of our commitment to supporting Honda’s Global 2030 Vision of electrifying two-thirds of our fleet,” said Jean Marc Leclerc, senior sales VP for Honda Canada.

“This electrification project is essential to our future business as we begin to introduce more electrified vehicles in Canada,” Leclerc added.

While Honda currently sells a Fit EV in the U.S., Honda Canada doesn’t offer any electric vehicles or even a plug-in hybrid. This will change when the Clarity Plug-in hybrid arrives this winter. Honda Canada said that the Clarity hybrid should have a 42 mile (68 km) range, and the new chargers should fill the 17 kilowatt-hour battery in two and a half hours. Honda Canada hasn’t yet announced if or when the fully electric Clarity might come to Canada.
