Love to see this type of thing. Let the EVs roll! I’m assuming an EV Pilot or equivalent is an inevitability at some point and I would be first in line to check one out.

Even though I just bought my 2019 lol!

Too bad our Energy Production infrastructure as of now, WON'T keep up with recharging 75% + EV vehicles.
Where does that energy come from anyways? Solar? Wind? Natural gas burning? Coal burning? Nuclear?

And the energy required to manufacture the millions of Li Ion battery packs that are not recyclable. We need better energy cells if this tech is going to be really beneficial for the environment.

This is nothing new as my 07 Saturn vue had the Honda j35 engine with the 5 speed AT. just like the Pilots.
funny how this news from a few months ago still comes up.
Honda got something from GM that it needed in Europe. Small Diesel engines.

NOT to mention the environmental impact of mining for those rare metals they use also.

Whatever happened to the Honda Clarity and the hydrogen fuel cell concept? That seemed to have much better long term promise than pure EVs.
Yes, I was wondering the same thing. I remember Ballard fuel cells that were actually tested on some buses and also a local company, Fuel Cell Technologies who were developing small hydrogen fuel cells for home use. No mention of them now.

It could eventaully come from Québec's vast and renewable hydroelectric infrastructures and independently "firewalled" grid, which also supplies most of the northeast US.





Texas' grid is independent too, but recent events have shown it to be less than reliable, and they implement Uber-like surge pricing.





But I'm with those who are holding out for hydrogen.
