Honda will be revealing its future electrification plans at the upcoming 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show. The car manufacturer will unveil the Urban EV Concept at the event. Interestingly, this concept vehicle is also the company’s first EV for the European market. Moreover, the Japanese automaker will also showcase the CR-V hybrid prototype which is based on the European version of the all-new CR-V SUV.

Additionally, Honda will also showcase the updated Jazz hatchback and the new diesel-powered variant of the tenth-generation Civic hatchback. The company has not spoken in detail about the Honda Urban EV concept yet and more details be forthcoming at the time of its unveiling. The teaser images however, reveal a dot-matrix display with Honda logo on the centre that reads out the charging status of the vehicle. By 2030, the Japanese car manufacturer plans to have two-thirds of its products operating on electronic technology.

Since most leading car manufacturers around the world are already working on developing electric cars, Honda will be the latest one to make an announcement in this regard.
