Honda Announces 0 (zero) Series EVs, First Model On Sale in 2026

Concepts for the first two models, Saloon and Space-Hub, took center stage at CES 2024

Today Honda has taken to the stage at CES in Las Vegas and unveiled two concepts from what it calls the "Honda 0 (zero) Series", an all-electric line-up planned for launch in 2026.

“The mobility we dream of is not an extension of the trend of ‘thick, heavy, but smart’ EVs,” said Toshihiro Mibe, Global CEO of Honda. “We will create a completely new value from zero based on thin, light and wise as the foundation for our new Honda 0 EV series to further advance the joy and freedom of mobility to the next level.”


The first of these models, called "Saloon" is said to be the "flagship" model of the 0 Series. It's a very sleek wedge-shaped car with gull-wing doors and digital display in it's wide "grille". Honda says, "Saloon delivers on the Honda “M/M*1" man maximum/machine minimum packaging concept with its low and wide exterior coupled with a surprisingly spacious interior".

“We have gone back to basics and formulated the Honda 0 Series with a design for the new era,” said Shinji Aoyama, Global EVP of Honda. “A bold and pure proportion that from the first glance is overwhelmingly different from other EVs to evoke a new perspective for people.”

Inside, the Saloon features a human-machine interface, high visibility and a sport driving position. Honda says it will debut steer-by-wire and motion control management systems, leveraging the company's expertise in robots.

Honda expects the production version of the Saloon to go on sale in North America in 2026.


The second vehicle to debut today was Space-Hub, a van-like vehicle designed as a flexible space designed as "a hub that connects people to each other and the outside world". That sounds to us like a mobility solution for taxis, ride-share and last-mile delivery, though Honda didn't specify intended uses.

A New "H" Mark

In addition to new vehicles, Honda showed us a new logo. The new "H" Mark will be used to "express the company's determination to undergo historic transformation". The logo, meant to symbolize two outstretched hands, will be applied to future EV models.

0 Series

Honda outlined three core principles that will guide the development of 0 Series vehicles: Thin, Light, and Wise. Frankly, we love the sound of that. Lighter EVs mean better efficiency, handling, and fewer resources used. Honda says these principles will be applied through the use of a "thin" EV platform for a low floor and improved aero, and a "wiser" user interface. Honda expects to showcase advancements in design, automated driving, connected technologies, performance, and battery efficiency through the 0 Series lineup.

More to come.
