Teaser images of the two future sports models under covers have been released, but there are no exact details available concerning either one just yet. A company statement said: "The 'joy of driving' will be passed on to our models even in the era of electrification... [they] will embody Honda's universal sports mindset and distinctive characteristics."

The 30-model figure includes Honda's previously announced plans to collaborate with GM to produce affordable EVs for North America from 2027, as well as launching 10 electric models on the Chinese market by 2027 and introducing small electric 'kei cars' to its native Japan during the first half of 2024.

From 2026 onwards, Honda electric models will adopt the company's 'e:Architecture' platform, which is said to combine hardware and software platforms in one. Dedicated electric-car production lines will also be established in Guangzhou and Wuhan in China, and in North America.

The company expects to spend 8 trillion yen (nearly £50 billion) on research and development in the next decade and aims to start 'demonstration production' of solid-state batteries in Spring 2024. It expects to have production cars with solid-state batteries on the road in the second half of the 2020s.

Elsewhere, Honda has also recently announced a tie-up with Sony to develop electric cars and is soon set to launch a new electric SUV, a new hybrid SUV, a new hybrid-only Civic and a new CR-V.
