Honda showed up at this year's CES event in Las Vegas with two new EV concept models, Saloon and Space-Hub.

The automaker is calling the Saloon, which adheres to Honda's "man maximum/machine minimum" design concept, the flagship concept model of the Honda 0 Series. The vehicle features a low and wide exterior, "surprisingly spacious interior," and heavy use of sustainable materials throughout. The Saloon also debuts Honda's steer-by-wire and motion control management systems.

Honda said a production vehicle based on the Saloon concept is expected to come to the North American market in 2026.

The Space-Hub, which looks like a futuristic minivan, is focused on providing a spacious cabin and high visibility. Honda said it imagined the vehicle as a flexible space for different passengers and that serves as a connected “hub.”

To go along with its new EV concepts, Honda also debuted a redesigned “H mark” that will be used exclusively for the company's future EV models.

“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, in a statement. “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.”

In 2026 when Honda's EVs begin to hit the North American market, consumers can expect them to feature automated driving features, AI-based customization options, enhanced aerodynamics and increased battery performance.
