QOTD: Will Honda's EV Strategy Pay Off?

by Tim Healey

Earlier today we reported on Honda's plan to invest in EV manufacturing in Canada.

Will it pay off?

Will this help Honda get stronger in terms of EV offerings? Or is it a lot of hype with not as much substance? Will it even matter -- will the industry shift away from EVs as the solution to pollution?

It's Friday, so let's head into the weekend with a discussion about manufacturing.

Sound off below.

Tim Healey grew up around the auto-parts business and has always had a love for cars — his parents joke his first word was “‘Vette”. Despite this, he wanted to pursue a career in sports writing but he ended up falling semi-accidentally into the automotive-journalism industry, first at Consumer Guide Automotive and later at Web2Carz.com. He also worked as an industry analyst at Mintel Group and freelanced for About.com, CarFax, Vehix.com, High Gear Media, Torque News, FutureCar.com, Cars.com, among others, and of course Vertical Scope sites such as AutoGuide.com, Off-Road.com, and HybridCars.com. He’s an urbanite and as such, doesn’t need a daily driver, but if he had one, it would be compact, sporty, and have a manual transmission.

    This thing here is interesting.

    For example, I can select "Historical" and "EV stock" and "Cars" and "USA" and see how many BEVs and PHEVs were on U.S. roads from 2010 to 2023.

    "EV stock share" is also interesting. Or perhaps you prefer "EV sales share".

    If you are in the U.S., whatever you do, do not select "World" in the 'Region' dropdown. It might blow your small insular mind. 😉

(The combined sales of ) Silverado + Sierra+ Tahoe + Yukon sales = (yields ) 2x ford total (profit from trucks) @ $15,000 profit per. (therefore gm has )Tons of $ (money ) to invest in the BEST truck. No. They make crap. Garbage. Evil gm Vampire. (expound / corrections )

      Anyone who’s not a racist that foolishly believes in climate change and the only solution to it being to increase taxes will get along with Pierre. I wish we could kidnap him and make him our president. He’s too good for Canada
