Honda has taken a significant step towards electrification in India by opening a new Research & Development (R&D) facility in Bengaluru, Karnataka. This move aligns with Honda's global target of achieving carbon neutrality by 2050 and aims to make all its motorcycle products carbon-neutral during the 2040s. 

The new Solution R&D Center will focus on incorporating advanced mobility technologies into the development of electrified vehicles. It will also explore software solutions and connected services, emphasizing open innovation through collaboration with local tech companies and startups. This initiative is part of Honda's broader vision to address environmental challenges and contribute to a sustainable future. 

By leveraging Bengaluru's vibrant ecosystem of technology and innovation, Honda's new R&D facility is expected to play a pivotal role in developing new services and businesses that extend beyond the scope of existing products. It's a strategic move that underscores Honda's commitment to advancing e-mobility technologies and addressing social issues like energy efficiency and traffic safety.

Furthermore, Honda will actively work to solve social issues, such as the effective use of energy through Honda's Triple Action to ZERO² initiative (carbon neutrality, clean energy, and resource circulation), and the prevention of traffic accidents to realize a society with zero traffic collision fatalities.
