Honda introduces its progress toward electrification and business transformation for the future

TOKYO, Japan, April 12, 2022 – Honda Motor Co., Ltd. today held a press briefing on its initiatives in automobile electrification business that included participation of the following Honda executives:

    Toshihiro Mibe: Director, President and Representative Executive Officer
    Kohei Takeuchi: Director, Executive Vice President and Representative Executive Officer
    Shinji Aoyama: Senior Managing Executive Officer

A press briefing video is available in English on the following YouTube link:

A summary of the briefing follows:

    Honda initiative for electrification

Honda is striving to be a company which serves as a source of “power” that supports people around the world who are trying to do things based on their own initiative and that helps people expand their own potential. To this end, Honda strives to realize “the joy and freedom of mobility” by seeking a “zero environmental footprint.”

<Solidifying existing businesses>

Over the past several years, Honda has been pursuing various initiatives toward the direction to “solidify existing businesses” and to “prepare for new growth” and these initiatives have begun showing positive results in the areas of products, businesses and new technologies.

・The structure of Honda automobile business has made steady improvement. As of today, the total number of variations at the trim and option level for global models has been reduced to less than one-half of the number in 2018 (Target: a reduction to one-third by 2025).

・As for cost associated with global automobile production, Honda is on track to achieve its 10% reduction target, compared to the cost recorded in 2018.

Honda will continue to accelerate its efforts to generate resources by solidifying existing businesses and invest such resources in electrification and the preparation for new growth.

<Unique Honda approach>

As the world's largest power unit manufacturer with annual sales of approximately 30 million units of mobility products including motorcycles, automobiles, power products, outboard motors and aircraft, we aim to realize carbon neutrality for all products and corporate activities Honda is involved in by 2050, striving to eliminate carbon emissions from power sources of a wide variety of products. To this end, Honda believes that a multifaceted and multidimensional approach is needed, not a mere replacing of engines with batteries.

Including the utilization of swappable batteries and hydrogen as well as electrification of automobiles, Honda will offer a variety of solutions for all of its mobility products according to how its customers use the products in various countries and regions.

Furthermore, with the connected platform, which connects all these elements, Honda will enhance the convenience and efficiency of society as a whole.

<Organizational changes made to strengthen electrification business>

In the past, Honda divided its organization by products, namely motorcycle, automobile and power products. However, starting this fiscal year, technology areas which will become the core of the future competitiveness of Honda have been moved from their respective product-based organizations and combined under the newly created Business Development Operations. Such core areas are: electrified products and services, battery, energy, Mobile Power Pack, hydrogen and software/connected technologies that connect all core areas. With this change, Honda will accelerate the speed at which it can move and enhance the “cross-domain” synergy effect among Honda products.


    Initiatives for automobile electrification business

<Battery procurement strategy>

The key challenge in the EV era is the global procurement of batteries. Honda has two basic approaches for its battery procurement strategy.

1) Now and for the time being:

Honda will ensure stable procurement of liquid lithium-ion batteries in each region by strengthening the external partnership.

    North America: Honda will procure Ultium batteries from GM. Separately, aside from GM, Honda is exploring the possibility of creating a joint venture company for battery production.
    China: Honda will further strengthen our collaboration with CATL.
    Japan: Honda will procure batteries for mini-EVs from Envision AESC.

2) From the second half of the 2020s:

Honda will further accelerate its independent research and development of next-generation batteries. For the all-solid-state batteries it currently has under development, Honda decided to build a demonstration line, investing approximately 43 billion yen, with a goal to make it operational in Spring 2024. Honda aims to adopt its next-generation batteries to models to be introduced to the market in the second half of the 2020s.


<Introduction of EVs>

Specific plans for the market introduction of EV models are as follows.

1) From now through the second half of the 2020s:

Honda will introduce products tailored to the market characteristics of each region.

    North America: In 2024, Honda will introduce two mid- to large-size EV models currently being developed jointly with GM. (Honda brand: All-new Prologue SUV, Acura brand: an EV SUV model.)
    China: Honda will introduce a total of 10 new EV models by 2027.
    Japan: In early 2024, Honda will first introduce a commercial-use mini-EV model at the 1-million-yen price range. Then, Honda is planning to make the timely introduction of personal-use mini-EVs and EV SUVs.

2) After the second half of the 2020s:

Assuming it will become the time of the popularization of EVs, Honda will begin introducing the best EVs from a global perspective.

・In 2026, Honda will begin adopting Honda e: Architecture, an EV platform that combines the hardware platform and software platform.

・Through the alliance with GM, Honda is planning to introduce affordable EVs in 2027, with a cost and range that will be as competitive as gasoline-powered vehicles, starting from North America.

Through these initiatives Honda is planning to launch 30 EV models globally by 2030, with a full lineup from commercial-use mini-EVs to flagship-class models, and Honda is planning for production volume of more than 2 million units annually.

<EV production>

    As for EV production operations, in China, Honda is planning to build a dedicated EV plant in Guangzhou as well as Wuhan.
    Honda is planning for a dedicated EV production line also in North America.


    Strengthening of the areas of connected / software technologies

Honda is striving to offer greater value not only with each of our products, but when various Honda products become linked and realize a connectivity beyond their product domains.

The key to achieve such connectivity is the technologies and frameworks, where Honda positions its electrified products as “terminals” and connects energy and information stored in each product with its users and society. Therefore, Honda will work on the establishment of the cross-domain connected platform, which will create new value for its customers.

In the areas of electrification technologies, including batteries, as well as software and connected technologies, for the acceleration of its development efforts, Honda will strive for a significant enhancement of development capabilities, which will include the strengthening of its human resource recruiting from outside Honda.

Also, in these areas, Honda will proactively pursue inter-industry collaboration and alliances, as well as investments in startups.

    Financial strategies that support the transformation of Honda businesses

While making progress in electrification, Honda will shift focus from non-recurring hardware sales business and strive to transform the portfolio of Honda businesses by combining hardware and software to expand connections with its customers and the range of its businesses. Also, after 2030, Honda will strengthen its combined solution business and also businesses in new areas. To realize such transformation of the business portfolio, Honda has been putting effort into solidifying its existing businesses.

<Improvement of the earnings structure>

In addition to its steady efforts to solidify existing businesses, Honda strived to reduce costs from all directions while facing a difficult business environment due to issues such as the pandemic and semiconductor shortage. As a result, the business structure has been improving, and Honda is confident that its continuous efforts will enable an adequate achievement of the return on sales (ROS) of more than 7%, which had been Honda’s mid- to long-term target. Also, the net cash balance was 1.9 trillion yen (at the end of the third quarter ended Dec. 31, 2021), maintaining a healthy level.

<Resource investments over the next 10 years and utilization of external funding>

    Honda will budget approximately 8 trillion yen for its research and development expenses. Of all R&D areas, Honda is planning to invest approximately 5 trillion yen in the areas of electrification and software (Approx. 3.5 trillion yen for R&D expenses and approx. 1.5 trillion yen for investments).
    For the preparation of new growth, including new technology areas and resource circulation, Honda will invest approximately 1 trillion yen over the next 10 years.
    Honda will be active in investing in startups with high-potential advanced technologies and business models at a scale of 10 billion yen per year, which will expand the range of Honda technologies and businesses.
    Based on its policy to utilize external funding methods on an as-needed basis, Honda issued Green Bonds totaling US$2.75 billion in March of this year. By allocating the proceeds from these Green Bonds to the development and production of zero-emission vehicles such as EVs and FCVs, Honda will further accelerate our initiatives toward the realization of a society that aims for zero environmental impact.


    Sports models

While taking on challenges toward carbon neutrality and electrification, Honda always has a passion to offer FUN for its customers. The “joy of driving” will be passed on to our models even in the era of electrification, and Honda will globally introduce two sports models, a specialty and a flagship model, which will embody Honda’s universal sports mindset and distinctive characteristics.

    e:HEV powertrain delivers exceptional efficiency and response
    High levels of body rigidity maximise stability and agility
    Steering and suspension configured to balance driver satisfaction with comfort
    Hybrid-only Civic is the final mainstream Honda model to be electrified
    WLTP economy from just 4.7 l/100km and CO2 from just 108g/km

The all-new Honda Civic has been engineered to ensure that its e:HEV (hybrid electric vehicle) powertrain, steering and suspension deliver the engaging levels of performance, dynamic response and feedback that have always been central to the Civic’s appeal. The result is a car that blends a rewarding driving experience with highly competitive efficiency and emissions.

Available later in 2022, the 11th-generation Civic is the final mainstream Honda model to be electrified, following the CR-V, Honda e, Jazz, Jazz Crosstar, and HR-V. The car will feature the most advanced iteration of the brand’s award-winning e:HEV full-hybrid powertrain. This combines a power-dense lithium-ion battery and two compact, powerful electric motors with a newly-developed 2.0-litre Atkinson-cycle petrol engine, which achieves industry-best equalling 41% thermal efficiency and features a direct injection system optimised for faster and more efficient combustion and greater torque output.  In addition to direct injection system, a number of technologies such as low temperature active catalyst, and a modified design on intake port help contribute to improved fuel economy whilst achieving specific output.

The result of these technological advancements is a WLTP ‘Combined’ CO2 emission figure of just 108g/km (WLTP), with fuel economy an equally impressive 4.7l/100km. This exceptional efficiency is combined with a maximum power output of 135kW and 315Nm maximum torque, ensuring the all new Civic is a compelling driver’s car within the C-segment.

This superior efficiency and energy management has been achieved through the application of innovative new technologies. For example, the latest version of Honda’s Intelligent Power Unit (IPU) is 23mm flatter and 1kg lighter than previous iterations, but with a higher cell count of 72 – the largest fitted to any of the current Honda e:HEV range. The slimline IPU sits under the rear seats, maximising interior space and usability.

A new Power Control Unit (PCU), located under the bonnet, enables the faster charge and discharge of electricity, contributing a further 12% increase in power output over previous e:HEV applications. The increase in power density and output of the PCU increases electrical output, allowing EV drive to take more of the load, and is handled by new aluminium-core high-voltage wiring. Aluminium wiring will contribute to 40% of weight reduction compared to conventional copper wiring.

The advanced powertrain shifts seamlessly between EV, hybrid and engine drive with no input from the driver. Four drive modes – Eco, Normal, Sport and a new Individual mode – can be selected by the driver to tailor the vehicle’s response in the area of powertrain, steering and display.

This engaging flexibility is underpinned with exceptional levels of refinement, with close attention paid to eliminating unwanted noise and vibration. A secondary balancer shaft, and high rigidity crankshaft within the internal combustion engine ensure smooth running, whilst unwanted engine noise has been countered through the increased application of insulation on the intake manifold and engine cover. In addition to these steps, clever application of Active Noise Control (ANC) further limits any noises that could resonate into the cabin, whilst Active Sound Control (ASC) heightens the sporty tones of the internal combustion unit.

Complimenting the exceptional power output is the chassis’ design. The Civic e:HEV has been developed with particular focus on steering response and feedback, heightening the driver’s sense of connection with the car. Improved stability in a straight line and over uneven road surfaces has been achieved thanks to a 35mm longer wheelbase and an 18mm wider rear track compared to the car’s predecessor. Cornering stability and overall input response has been further improved with increased body rigidity and the application of low friction ball joints and revised front dampers; combining to enhance the dynamic feel.

To enhance driving pleasure and response a new control logic, ‘winding control’, ensures that the internal combustion engine’s operation is maintained during cornering on twisting roads. This enables the car to deliver instant acceleration, providing a truly dynamic sensation when accelerating. On the highway, the additional torque and electric drive provides powerful overtaking acceleration when at high speed but with reduced engine revving noise, for relaxed long-distance travel.

“This is the latest generation of our industry-leading e:HEV technology, which itself is the culmination of over 20 years experience of designing, building and refining hybrid drive systems,” said Tomoyuki Yamagami, Large Project Leader for the all-new Civic e:HEV. “By carefully assessing the broad range of use-cases and operational environments, we have been able to take a ‘whole vehicle’ approach, making it a fun, highly compelling and engaging driver’s hybrid.”

    All-new Honda Civic attends Milan Design week in conjunction with Vanity Fair
    Civic adopts a human-centred approach to both interior and exterior design
    Longer wheelbase, wider track and lower roof line give a coupe-like silhouette
    Smooth, clean lines and sporty shape creates a familiar yet fresh appearance
    Intelligent packaging amplifies sense of airiness resulting in a spacious cabin

 To celebrate the European launch of the all-new Honda Civic e:HEV, the car took centre stage at the Vanity Fair ‘Social Garden’ exhibition at Milan Design Week 2022.

“Vanity Fair always strives to look one step ahead with curiosity and a revolutionary spirit: this Design Week, we are delighted to welcome to our VF Social Garden creative and dynamic minds whose contributions improve the quality of our lives and make them easier, without overlooking the environmental impact of what they create,” explains Vanity Fair Co-Director, Cristina Lucchini

“We are delighted to be able to share the Civic with the Italian public for the first time. The response to the car so far has been outstanding and hosting at Milan Design Week provides an opportunity to engage with design-focused customers,” explains Italy General Manager Automobile Division, Simone Mattogno.

Honda’s all-new 11th-generation Civic has been engineered with a unique human-centred approach to dynamics and design. Following the ‘exhilarating Civic’ development ethos, Honda engineers focused on how exterior and interior packaging can work together to create a more comfortable and refreshing in-car experience that will enhance owners’ everyday lives.

First introduced in 1972 as a ‘car for people of the world’, the Civic has become the basis of Honda’s ‘Man-Maximum, Machine-Minimum’ (M/M) development principle. Now found across the Honda product portfolio, this direction follows the belief that the purpose of vehicle technology and design is to serve the needs of the driver and passengers. In the latest Civic the result is a cabin with greater comfort, visibility and spaciousness than ever before, in addition to enhanced safety and greater driver engagement.

Dynamic exterior design

Honda’s ‘exhilarating’ development approach has created a modern evolution of the Civic’s exterior design, that also echoes the noiseless, elegant design direction of other recent Honda models. The new Civic features a lower, sleeker roof line, and a lower belt line that increases the glasshouse, improving outward visibility and delivering the same sense of airiness experienced inside the original Civic.

To create the sportier, coupe-like aesthetic, the new Civic’s wheelbase is 35mm longer than the previous model, but with a 20mm shorter rear overhang, and reduced overall height. The highest point of the roof line is set further forward than the previous model, with a gentle slope to the tailgate completing its sleek look.

“The key element in this design, is the design of the rear roof end. In fact, we considered various patterns,” explains Hitomaro Asano, Civic Exterior Designer. “We considered an extra window type with two panes of glass and the so-called hatchback style. In such a situation, we thought that the design that would make people feel good or exhilarated the moment they see it. It should not have a weak form, but one that looks as if it has been drawn in a single stroke.”

The resin tailgate, developed through a new manufacturing technology, reduces the tailgate weight by 20% compared to its predecessor and is crucial for achieving the sleeker design. This approach to restrained, smooth design is also apparent around the front of the car; in comparison to the previous generation the hood and front fenders are lower by 25mm, with the A-pillars 50mm further rearward, giving the driver impressive, uninterrupted visibility. This reduced frontal mass also has the effect of making the wheels and tyres appear larger, which, combined with the wider rear track and wheel arch hemming, creates a lower, more assured stance and projects a sense of greater agility.

“The main aim was to give this new Civic a sporty and youthful appearance, which is the basis of the model,” continues Asano. “So, we tried to create a very bold face, while making the upper area look as thin as possible,” adds Asano. “This is also a story of successive generations, but as the face of the Civic has changed, I looked for something in common, and I found one thing. They all had a face where the upper grille was a bit lower and the headlights were a bit higher, so we tried to incorporate the grille and the headlights in the same position as in previous generations.”

 Enhanced interior comfort and convenience

Inside the cabin, Honda’s M/M development principle is exemplified by a human-centred interior that has been designed to ensure premium levels of refinement and spaciousness. The cabin has greater visibility and airiness thanks to the low, flat dashboard, external mirror positioning and large windows all-round.

“When we all came up with the keyword 'exhilarating' for the design concept, we started thinking about how we could apply that to the interior, and we came up with the idea of what would happen if we cut it by time, for example,” says Yasunori Ogawa, Civic Interior Designer. “We thought that if we could have a refreshing morning, a pleasant morning, we would feel good all day long. It is difficult to feel good all day long, but if we focus on the morning, we can achieve this. During our research, three keywords emerged: cleanliness, rhythm and stimulation.”

What this translates to, is an interior design that embodies the same clean, modern design philosophy as the exterior; with an uncluttered, user-focused layout featuring high quality materials and tactile touchpoints that enhance the experience for drivers and passengers.

Despite the lower roofline, interior headroom and cabin space remain the same as the previous model, thanks to the clever packaging of hybrid components into the chassis and engine bay. The new Civic’s generous cargo area has the same load capacity as before – among the largest in its segment – but with a wider tailgate aperture for improved usability. The result is a vehicle with the space and functionality to make it a viable alternative to larger vehicles such as SUVs.

“The tailgate hinges are located around the back of the rear passenger’s head, and this is inevitably a hard point and a bottleneck, so it's not easy to lower the roofline,” adds Asano. “Of course, there are ways to make the design work at the expense of the package, but neither Civic nor Honda want to sacrifice the package by any means. We made this a common understanding among everyone in interior design, exterior design and packaging, and then started to work out how to do it.

We started by talking about bringing the hinge position to the outside of the pillar. As for the cutline, when we imagined a noiseless cabin, if we put a cutline in the middle of the C-pillar, for example, it would ruin it all at once. We definitely don't want to split the line that flows from the front to the back all the way through, so we proposed to go around to the quarter glass, and everyone, including the designers, decided to go for it.”

Continuing the design focus on attention to detail are the innovative air outlets positioned around the interior. They enable a wider yet less intrusive flow of air around the cabin, whilst a premium look has been achieved by applying a honeycomb mesh pattern on the full-width air vent aperture

“One of the key words for the interior design of Civic is ‘cleanliness.’ This is a personal impression, but it's something I've felt since I joined the industry that I don't like the presence of the air conditioning outlets in the instrument panel,” explains Ogawa. “In the old days in Japan, trains had fans. I can't help but see the contents of the AC outlet as just that. But if you look at home interiors, for example, all these things are hidden in plain sight. Using those key ideas for the design of Civic, I have introduced a honeycomb pattern across the dashboard to give a high-quality finish but also cleanliness throughout the interior.”

Great focus has been placed on designing an environment that requires little physical movement by occupants once seated. The infotainment system is positioned in the peripheral view of the driver, meaning that to check information they do not have to physically move their head – reducing distractions, and time not looking ahead, enhancing safety.

“We took an interesting approach to development this time, and from the early stages of development, we dynamically verified the volume framework and the height of the HMI by applying various pastes to the actual car on the Honda facility site to check the ergonomic layout and how easy it is to interact with controls as well as see what visibility would be good,” explains Ogawa.

The Civic has set new benchmarks ever since its launch fifty years ago, selling more than 27.5 million units across 170 countries. The all-new version arrives in Europe from autumn 2022.

Developed as a ‘car for the world’, more than 27.5 million Civics have been sold in 170 countries since the model was first launched in 1972. As it enters its sixth decade with the launch of the 11th generation, the Civic continues to set new class benchmarks and exceed the expectations of customers around the world.

The Civic’s enduring popularity is testament to the pioneering work of Honda engineers over the past half a century. Each generation has introduced its own progressive evolution of the original Civic design, advanced technologies and new levels of performance, while maintaining the same purpose as the first Civic: a spacious, fun to drive and economical compact car.
Civic celebrates its 50th Anniversary

1972 – 1979: A Civic for all citizens

The first Civic was developed as a global car for all markets, offering exceptional practicality in everyday driving. It was one of the first Honda cars to be sold in Europe, achieving instant acclaim for its compact design, impressive fuel economy and usability. Equipped with a revolutionary Compound Vortex Controlled Combustion (CVCC) engine, the Civic became the first vehicle to comply with the world's strictest emission regulations, the 1970 Clean Air Act, setting the standard for future emissions targets across the global automotive industry. The first generation Civic was first produced in Suzuka Factory, Japan. Accumulated production volume reached 1 million units within the first four years.

Into the 80s: Civic comes of age

In 1979 the second generation Civic arrived along with an improved CVCC-II engine, building on the success of the original Civic with a 1.3 litre engine that offered a smoother delivery of power as well as being more economical. The range of models was also extended with a 1.5 litre sedan, hatchback and wagon also offered. A five-speed manual transmission was also added to the line-up. The model introduced a new distinctive two-box trapezoidal design with the front grille and headlights getting a more angular look. However, this shape was short lived as the Civic grew in popularity and a new model was required to meet consumer demand for larger cars.

The third generation Civic arrived in 1983 with a wider wheelbase and a more angular design. It is notable for the introduction of Honda’s ‘Man Maximum-Machine Minimum’ principle, a human-centric approach to design that ensures the technology and layout served the needs of the driver and passengers. Today, this principle still helps define all Honda models, to help deliver the space and usability expected by modern drivers.

It was available in three body styles: a three-door that emphasised sporty driving, a more practical four-door sedan, and a five-door Civic Shuttle station wagon that offered exceptional space and utility. A sportier Civic Si variant was also introduced with a 1.6 litre DOHC series inline four-cylinder engine.

1987 – 2000: New standards of quality and performance

In 1987, the fourth generation Civic introduced a new range of engine options featuring Honda’s VTEC (Variable Valve Timing and Lift Electronic Control) system. Its variable timing mechanism revolutionised engine technology, delivering greater performance at high revs and improved fuel consumption at low revs – landing the Civic several awards.

The fifth generation Civic quickly followed in 1991, debuting a sleeker and more aerodynamic form, for a sportier appeal – while maintaining the everyday functionality the car had become synonymous with. The sixth generation Civic was developed to create a higher value than its class. In 1990s, lower fuel consumption and other environmental actions became more significant. As such, this model had a newly developed VTEC engine. It also featured ‘Hondamatic Transmission’ an automatic continuously variable transmission (CVT) for the first time, which offered seamless gear changes and manual-like economy.

Building on the exceptional dynamic capabilities of the standard Civic, Honda debuted the performance-focused Type R variant in 1997. With a focus on delivering the most extreme performance yet seen from Civic, it became the catalyst for 25 years of success for Honda in the competitive hot hatch sector.

2001 – 2021: The millennial Civic

The seventh generation arrived in 2000 and became the first Civic to offer hybrid technology in 2001.

This Civic recorded the world's most fuel-efficient 5-seater production gasoline vehicle with ultra-high fuel economy of 29.5km/l.

In 2005, the eighth generation hatchback arrived with futuristic styling for European markets, a Perspex grille and triangular accents – including the dual tailpipes - that made it one of the most distinctive vehicles on the road. It was also the first generation of Civic to feature Honda’s Magic Seats, where the rear seat cushions can be raised to create a tall loading area. This was enabled by engineers situating the fuel tank beneath the front seats – a blueprint for achieving interior space and usability still followed today in various Honda models.

The ninth generation Civic added further refinement to create a well-rounded package for customers, including class-leading efficiency. Featuring a revised 1.6 DTEC engine, the vehicle achieved a Guinness World Records title for the ‘Lowest fuel consumption – all 24 contiguous EU countries (all cars)’, recording an average 2.82 litres per 100km (100.31mpg) over 13,498km (8,387 miles), in a 25 day drive across all 24 EU contiguous countries.

A completely remodelled 10th generation arrived in 2015 with a choice of two VTEC TURBO engines and incorporated advanced safety features and driver aids, Honda SENSING, for the first time. Engineered with a stiffer chassis and greater dynamic performance, it provided the perfect platform for the 2017 Civic Type R, which set new performance boundaries for high-performance hatchbacks. The car was universally praised for its direct handling, instant throttle response, high top speed, stability and exceptional stopping power - all of which contributed to the Type R setting a new benchmark lap time for front-wheel drive cars at the Nürburgring Nordschleife in Germany in April 2017.

2022: A new era of Civic

Building on 50 years of heritage, the 11th generation Civic blends strong performance and efficiency with improved levels of interior comfort, visual appeal and overall usability. The latest iteration marks a major milestone for Honda in Europe, as it’s the latest model in the range to be electrified, completing Honda Motor Europe’s 2022 ‘Electric Vision’ commitment to electrify all mainstream models It features the most advanced iteration of the brand’s multiple award winning e:HEV full-hybrid powertrain system as standard, offering engaging dynamics and performance with impressive economy and efficiency.

“Ever since the first generation, that launched to such great acclaim, the Honda Civic has been an iconic model for European customers,” said Tom Gardner Senior Vice President at Honda Motor Europe Ltd. “The 11th generation encapsulates the core characteristics of functionality, usability and comfort from the very first generation Civic. It has been engineered to ensure that its powertrain, steering and suspension deliver the engaging levels of performance, dynamic response and feedback that have always been central to the Civic’s appeal.”

    New Civic Type R builds on 25 years of ultimate hot hatch performance
    Performance-focused upgrades deliver the ultimate Type R driving experience
    Latest generation recently set new front-wheel drive lap record at Suzuka
    Available to customers in Europe from early 2023

Honda has unveiled the all-new Civic Type R as it celebrates 25 years of the brand’s iconic high-performance hatchback – and 50 years of Civic. The new Type R has been engineered to deliver the most exhilarating Civic Type R experience to date, building on a long tradition of performance cars inspired by the spirit of racing.

Available in Europe from early 2023, the Civic Type R is already setting new benchmarks, recently breaking the front-wheel drive lap record at Suzuka Circuit in Japan. As part of its development, Honda engineers refined every aspect of the new model, including design enhancements that improve aerodynamic performance. Lightweight components and powertrain revisions have created the most responsive and powerful Type R ever.

“With the all-new Civic Type R, Honda engineers have again delivered on our goal to create the most rewarding driving experience in the performance hatchback segment,” said Tom Gardner, Senior Vice President, Honda Motor Europe. “Through exceptional advancements and the application of motorsport-derived technologies, we have exceeded the capabilities of even the stripped out, lightweight version of the previous model. It is this dedication to performance excellence that has made the Civic Type R so popular with driving purists for 25 years.”

Powerful aerodynamic design

Developed under the model concept of creating the “Ultimate Sports 2.0,” the new Type R builds on sleek and sporty silhouette of the recently revealed Honda Civic e:HEV. To enhance the sportier look and elevate driving performance, the Type R is noticeably lower and wider in stance. The squat form is enhanced through wheel arches that flare out over lightweight 19-inch matte black alloy wheels, shod with bespoke Michelin Pilot Sport 4S tyres.

During development, Honda engineers worked to the concept of creating the “Ultimate Sports Design”: The ultimate expression of a high-performance, front-engine, front-wheel-drive car. The exterior design now conveys a sense of unity, with uncluttered details on the front and rear bumpers as well as beautifully integrated design features such as the rear doors and arches, which have all been exclusively developed for the Type R and bring improved aerodynamic benefits.

The large lower grille of the front bumper maximises airflow to the engine, and works in unison with the new, subtle bonnet that now features a vent to again maximise airflow around the front end.

Other design details that help maximise aerodynamics include the large aperture vents behind the front wheels and a new, larger rear diffuser that is integrated directly into the under-floor - itself shaped to work in unison with the bodywork above.

The dramatic new rear spoiler design further contributes to downforce generation and has been angled rearward to suppress air resistance. Supported by new aluminium die-cast mounts, the rear wing sits lower but wider than the previous model, accentuating the sleek new roofline and wider stance.

Paint finish choices include the historic Championship White revered by Honda Type R enthusiasts, in addition to a solid Rallye Red, as well as Racing Blue, Crystal Black and Sonic Grey Pearls.

Immersive cockpit experience

The interior of the new model is dedicated to enhancing the exhilaration of driving and sharpening concentration levels. It maintains the high level of comfort, practicality and refinement found within the all-new Civic e:HEV, elevated by emotive, performance-focused details and features, such as the iconic classic Type R red trim.

The immersive cockpit is designed to support intense driving experiences: the driver sits lower than before, with greater visibility over the lower bonnet, blind spots minimised, and reflective elements reduced. The lightweight front sports seats with suede-effect upholstery offer exceptional support for the driver’s postural structure to provide comfort and manoeuvrability on the track and during long drives.

Drivers can seamlessly switch between performance settings, with pre-set modes for the engine, steering, suspension and engine sound. In addition to Comfort, Sport and +R modes, a new ‘Individual Mode’ has been introduced to enable customisation of the driving experience.

The powerful Honda LogR data logger returns in a heavily updated format for this generation of Type R, and now combines performance data collected by in-car sensors with a smartphone app to help drivers monitor and record a variety of metrics in real-time. Key features include a stopwatch to record lap times, tyre friction circles that displays the maximum tyre force the vehicle can achieve, 3D vehicle motion display, and an innovative scoring function that helps drivers improve their skills on the track and much more to engage with drivers and encourage safe, accurate and incrementally faster laps on track.

Performance-focused engineering enhancements

The Civic Type R is renowned for its powerful, highly responsive and high revving engines. The new model builds on the award-winning basis of its predecessor by evolving the 17YM Type-R’s famed engine even further to deliver the fastest, most addictive yet secure and rewarding drive in the model’s history.

Changes are incremental with the revised turbocharger now featuring a compact housing to improve the overall unit efficiency. The turbine itself has had both its blade count and shape optimized to boost power and improve airflow through the turbo. This has resulted in the strongest VTEC turbocharged engine in the Type R’s engine. 

A revised, high-efficiency exhaust system works in conjunction with the above to improve the power-to-weight ratio, torque and top speed of the previous generation Type R and make the 2023 Civic Type R one of the most powerful per litre cars in its class.

Helping drivers feel connected to their car is an optimised version of the six-speed manual transmission that helped the previous generation enamour fans around the world. A revised rev-match system with auto blip ensures perfectly paired rev-matching when shifting down through the gears, helping balance the car on corner entry. The high-strength gearbox has gained a high-rigidity lever and optimized shift gate pattern for a reassured and hyper-precise gear change.

The upgraded Brembo braking system retains the two-piece discs from the previous generation for improved feel and longevity. The new car features enhanced temperature control and air-cooling through an upgraded radiator, ensuring sustained, optimal performance during heavy use. A new triple-exhaust design with enhanced sound modulation enhances the aural sensation, further strengthening the driver’s connection with the car.

The all-new Honda Civic Type R will go on sale on next year, with first deliveries to customers beginning in Europe from early 2023.

    Introduced in 1997, Civic Type R has been continuously refined to deliver the ultimate front-engine, front-wheel drive experience
    The Type R name has been synonymous with delivering an unmistakable mix of enthralling dynamics and high-performance engines
    Crimson Honda badge has now been applied to six generations of Civic
    Latest variant becomes the performance halo of the Honda range

Honda’s iconic Civic is celebrating two anniversaries this year: 50 years of continuous production and 25 years of the high-performance, race-derived Type R variant, which rewrote the rulebook on what a hot hatch should be. Despite being born as the more attainable Type R, the Civic variants embody the Type R philosophy the maximum thanks to exquisite engineering and engaging dynamics. Over six generations, the formula has evolved to deliver the ultimate front engine, front wheel drive performance hatchback to customers. One that can comfortably handle the daily commute from Monday to Friday, before tackling the circuit at weekends.


EK9 (1997-2000): An affordable, accessible Type R for all

The Type R nameplate can be traced back to the 1992 Honda NSX Type R, which raised the bar on performance and dynamic ability, but was only available in extremely limited numbers. Applying the Type R philosophy to the Civic followed a similar engineering ethic to the Integra and NSX to offer an engaging, rewarding drive. The EK9 was offered to the Japanese market only and had a high-end specification; including a hand-ported 1.6-liter DOHC VTEC engine that produced a highly impressive 116bhp-per—litre, a lightweight seam-welded shell that contributed to a total vehicle weight of just 1050kg, paired with a helical Limited Slip Differential (LSD), and unique suspension components to completely transform the driving experience. Launched to outstanding reviews, the EK9 set in motion the pursuit of the ultimate front-engine, front wheel drive performance hatchback.


EP3 (2001 – 2005) A European take on the Type R

As a result of the overwhelming success of the first-generation car, the second-generation was offered across Europe; thanks, in part, to now being manufactured in the United Kingdom. The new car introduced an all-new, and now iconic 2.0-liter DOHC i-VTEC ‘K’ series engine that redefined what a normally aspirated two-litre engine could do. It too featured uprated brakes, a precise, close-ratio six-speed transmission and a shell that made extensive use of high-tensile steel to increase torsional static rigidity by 80% over the EK9. Toe-control link strut suspension in the front and reactive-link double-wishbone suspension at the rear combined with new electric power steering (EPS) and variable gear ratio (VGR) for highly rewarding steering feel and feedback.


FN2/ FD2 (2007-2011) Type R – two ways

The third generation Civic Type R was unique in that the European and Japanese models differed dramatically. Europe received the FN2-based hatchback, which retained the proven 2.0-liter engine, but introduced a new chassis that moved the fuel tank beneath the front seats to improve interior space and flexibility. Japanese customers were instead offered the FD2 saloon, which offered an even more focused driving experience thanks to additional items such as a more powerful K20A engine, a helical LSD and powerful Brembo brakes. The saloon’s increased weight was countered by extensive use of structural adhesives instead of welding, and aluminium in both the chassis and panels.


FK2 (2015-2017) Introducing the VTEC TurboA

As market and regulatory expectations shifted, the move toward turbocharging was inevitable. Honda engineers worked meticulously to develop the K20C1 turbocharged 2.0-liter engine that offered explosive performance thanks to a 310PS output. In order to better control that significant increase in power, Honda introduced its Dual Axis Strut Suspension paired with a limited-slip differential to counter the torque-steer encountered in high output front wheel drive cars. The 2015 Civic Type-R sprinted from 0-100km/h in just 5.7 seconds and came equipped with large diameter (351mm) front discs that formed part of the high-performance Brembo braking system. The FK2 proved a formidable base for a competition car, winning several TCR Touring Car titles across the globe.


FK8 (2017-2022) The Ultimate Sports hatchback

Arriving in 2017, the FK8 was the ultimate evolution of the Civic Type R. A significant evolution of the FK2, the new car gained a host of new mechanical features such as adaptive dampers, and further revisions to the K20C1 engine to boost power to 320PS. The model also introduced downforce to the equation for an even more intense drive; the external aerodynamic package worked in unison with an advanced, almost flat underfloor, to actively contribute to negative lift. The model also made its debut in the United States, with the region leading global sales for the car.


FL5 (2022-) Ultimate Sports 2.0

Launching later this year, the all-new generation car further evolves, matures, and refines technologies that have been developed over several generations. Whilst new technologies and refined aerodynamics have helped set the bar higher once again, a clear lineage can be traced back to the FD2 generation with the incremental revisions resulting in the fastest, most rewarding and addictive Civic Type R ever built. Already the track record holder at Suzuka, the 2022 Civic Type R is a fitting way to celebrate 30 years of the Type R nameplate.

The Civic e:HEV’s interior has been designed with particular attention paid to colours, materials and tactility to ensure a premium feeling to each interaction and touchpoint. These qualities are complimented by a range of intuitive technologies and seamless in-car connectivity options, designed to integrate with occupants' everyday lives with ease.

The 11th generation Civic has been engineered to offer exceptional levels of crash protection. The highly rigid chassis works in combination with Honda’s SENSING suite of advanced driver assistance systems, 11 airbags, and compatibility with the latest generation of i-Size and Isofix child seats to ensure all occupants are protected should an accident occur.




    All-new Civic e:HEV features the latest, enhanced Honda SENSING™ technologies, including sonar sensors and front wide view camera for all round safety
    New structural components built in to the Civic’s chassis and body help improve front, rear, and side collision protection
    Complementing the improved structure of Civic are eleven airbags, including a new front centre airbag for increased occupant protection
    Honda’s commitment to achieving zero road fatalities involving its products by 2050 ensures the Civic remains one of the safest car in its class

The all-new Honda Civic e:HEV has been awarded the maximum five-star rating in the latest Euro NCAP safety tests. Embodying Honda’s commitment to zero road fatalities involving any of its products by 2050, the 11th generation Civic features a number of improved and upgraded technologies to achieve one of the highest level of passenger and pedestrian safety in its class.

To meet stringent Euro NCAP crash impact safety standards for Adult Occupant Protection, the Civic’s body incorporates a number of structural braces to enhance the overall passive safety of the vehicle. This includes additional front door stiffeners and rear wheel arch frames that improve side impact performance. These are joined by a full-width brace that supports the joining edge between the floor and resin bulkhead, to help control and limit deformation in the event of a head on or offset frontal collision.

In addition to the stronger, more protective chassis, all trim variants of the new Civic incorporate a total of 11 airbags as standard, including knee airbags for both front occupants to reduce injury during front impacts and side airbags to protect front and rear seat passengers. A front centre airbag features for the first time, which prevents a collision between the driver and front passenger during a side impact.

This level of protection is extended to all occupants of the all-new Civic, not just adults. The car also scored well in the Child Occupant Protection category thanks to the integrated ISOFIX mounting points that conform to the latest European i-Size standards.

    Honda and Next Kraftwerke successfully finish proof of concept project
    Fleet of Honda e and Honda Power Managers acquire certification for Frequency Containment Reserve using CCS charging standard
    Honda and Next Kraftwerke prove value of how electric vehicles can enable grid stability

Honda’s advanced research and development division, Honda R&D Europe (Deutschland) GmbH, has made a significant breakthrough in vehicle to grid (V2G) technology. In a pilot with Next Kraftwerke GmbH, one of Europe’s largest Virtual Power Plant (VPP) operators, Honda has become the first automaker in Europe to achieve certification of a fleet of mass produced EVs, for the prequalification of frequency containment reserve (FCR) by Ampiron GmbH in Germany. 

When reacting to short-term frequency deviations in the power grid, service operators rely on balancing services that automatically intervene to restore the balance between supply and demand. Of these balancing services, FCR is the highest performance class for grid stabilisation and is also referred to as primary control reserve as it is the first response to frequency disturbances.

The pilot utilized mass production Honda e EVs, which qualified for support of grid stability through the instant provision of FCR to the Transmission System Operator (TSO). A fleet of 6 Honda e’s and 6 Honda Power Manager bi-directional CCS chargers were used during the trial, in which Honda was able to fulfil the high requirements for charging and discharging, necessary to ensure stable 50Hz grid frequency.

Using real-time information from Next Kraftwerke about current power capacity, Honda’s own power management system is able to respond within required standard time to charging and discharging commands of the TSO to each individual vehicle, while respecting the single SOC preferences of the individual EV driver.

This development is a vital step for advancing the role of EVs and bi-directional charging technology in any future sustainable energy system. Maintaining a consistent grid stability, will become one of the major challenges for the TSOs alongside with the further expansion of renewable energy sources.

“The project with Next Kraftwerke enables Honda to meet the new demands of the European market and deliver on its commitment to develop technologies that are creating value for  society,” said Tom Gardner, Senior Vice President, Honda Motor Europe. “Typically, EVs are parked and connected to a charging station for most of the day, at offices and on driveways. Honda has identified that these standing times can be better utilised to offer additional services and revenues, through smart charging and discharging based on the current power grid frequency. This not only benefits EV owners, but also the surrounding infrastructure as we transition into an e-mobility-driven society.”

Honda Power Manager
Honda Power Manager is a bidirectional system that connects EVs to a smart power grid, enabling the collection and distribution of electricity between the two. This allows for intelligent balancing of the supply and demand of energy, including the better use of renewable sources. This not only regulates power to stabilise the grid during periods of high demand and minimise bottlenecks in the distribution of energy, but also reduces the need for expensive grid expansions as the demand for EV charging increases.

In a recent trial, Honda partnered with the V2X Suisse consortium to demonstrate the vital role of EVs and bidirectional charging technology in the future of energy management. The company supplied 50 Honda e cars and 35 Honda Power Manager units to support the pioneering trial, which delivered vehicle-to-grid (V2X) energy recovery capability for car sharing operator, Mobility, at sites across Switzerland.

Honda e

The Honda e is a multi award-winning all electric vehicle. The stylish city car has a number of unique features such as its lounge inspired interior, seamless connectivity and the latest Honda SENSING suite of advanced driver assistance systems. With a WLTP range of 120 miles and rapid charge capability, the Honda e is designed for everyday life
