Honda 0 Series 2026: new electric concepts slated for future production


Two new EV concepts have given us a glimpse of Honda’s electrified future starting from 2026 

Honda has revealed two new electric concept vehicles at the Consumer Electronic Show (CES) this week in Las Vegas, USA. 

Part of the new 0 Series, Honda has confirmed it will launch these vehicles in production form sometime in 2026.

Also new for the Honda brand will be the reinvention of the original H mark, harking back to Honda badging of old.

The first 0 Series Honda EVs, a Saloon and Space Hub people mover, will first launch in North America and will then be followed by releases in Japan, Asia, Europe, Africa, the Middle East and finally, South America. 

Honda Saloon

The Saloon debuts as what Honda calls the “flagship concept model” that uses a dedicated EV architecture, low height and roofline and sporty styling.

Key takeaways from the Saloon:

  • Whale shark-like front end design 
  • Steer-by-wire technology 
  • Sustainable materials used for exterior and interior
  • New Honda logo 
  • No word yet on electric powertrain specifications  

Honda Space Hub 

The second concept is a very people mover-looking EV, with a fully circular rear tail light design and a spacious interior that offers greater flexibility for occupants.

Key takeaways from the Space Hub:

  • Yoke-style steering wheel
  • Glass dome covered cabin
  • Circular tail light design 
  • New H logo 
  • Light up ‘Honda’ logo on tailgate
  • Second and third row lounge-style seating setup
  • Unknown battery platform/electric motor technology

Honda has stated it wants zero environmental impact with these new concepts, and claims to be adopting a new thin, light and wise approach to EV development:

  • Thin – low vehicle height, aerodynamic performance and thin EV platform
  • Light – realising sporting driving and electrical efficiency 
  • Wise – smart mobility products such as ADAS and connected services

Also, five key ‘values’ have been constructed that will form the basis for Honda electric vehicles into the future.

  • Artistic design 
  • AD/ADAS safety – adding level three automated driving and AD automated driving 
  • A “space” – providing an interesting experience for drivers 
  • The joy of driving -providing a sporty driving experience 
  • Outstanding electrical efficiency – using lightweight, high density battery packs and faster charging (15-80 percent in under 15 minutes)

Honda is yet to launch a fully-electric vehicle in Australia, however it does offer a hybrid-electric powertrain for its Civic hatch, CR-V midsize SUV, ZR-V small SUV and the HR-V small SUV
