Honda to Debut Electric Concept Model and New Plug-in Hybrid Platform at LA Show

Last week, we told you about some of the new cars and concept models heading to the LA Auto Show in mid-November. Now we have news of Honda's plans for the motor show. The Japanese automaker said it will host the world premiere of an all-new electric vehicle concept as well as a plug-in hybrid platform showcasing the next-generation of Honda hybrid technology.

"Both the electric vehicle concept and the plug-in hybrid platform along with the FCX Clarity fuel cell electric vehicle demonstrate the company's vision for the future of personal mobility and its continued commitment to developing advanced environmental technologies," said Honda in a statement.

Unfortunately, Honda did not hand out any photos of the concept model or of the plug-in hybrid platform project.

The Japanese firm added that for time in the LA Show's history, Honda Motor Co., Ltd. President and CEO Takanobu Ito will attend the press conference to showcase the two models.
