While you probably think of Honda as a fairly fuel-efficient carmaker, the company actually lags far behind many other big automotive brands when it comes to offering hybrid and electric cars. CEO Takahiro Hachigo wants to see the majority of Honda’s American sales be hybrids and EVs by 2030, according to Automotive News. Honda will shoot to get those categories to make up two-thirds of its cars and trucks worldwide by that point, Hachigo told AN, but “the ratio will be far higher in the U.S.” Plug-in vehicles, he said, will make up the core of the American market.

The AMA, which lasted roughly two hours, was intended as a supplement to the presentation he gave on during last month’s International Astronautical Congress. Which, in turn, meant questions were limited to the fledgling commercial rocket program, and Interplanetary Transport System, not Musk's electric car company or recently consolidated renewable energy firm, SolarCity.
