Honda Plans To Launch 10 EV Motorcycles

Honda, the world’s largest motorcycle manufacturer, has announced its plans to launch electric motorcycles.

Honda announced it would introduce “10 or more” electric motorcycles by 2025. Most of those will not be available in North America, as the company plans to focus on Asian and European markets.

Honda plans to introduce three “large-size” EV models in Japan, the US and Europe between 2024 and 2025.

The company said it expects annual sales of 1 million electric motorcycles within the next five years. The company plans to become carbon neutral by 2050.

Honda said it expects electric motorcycles to comprise 15% of its bike business by 2030, driven by growing strong demand in China, India and elsewhere in Asia.

“Electrification is a long road and we are discussing a variety of options without excluding anything from consideration. However, we have no plan to separate the electric two-wheeler business into a new business unit to be listed on a stock exchange,” Honda said in a statement.

Meanwhile, the company said it would continue to produce internal combustion engine models, however, will strive to make them more environmentally friendly by introducing more “flex-fuel” motorcycles that can use E20 and E100 ethanol-based fuels in 2023 and 2025.

Crude Oil Futures Settle Notably Higher

Crude oil prices climbed higher on Wednesday amid speculation the Biden administration might consider refilling the country’s oil reserve, and on data showing a drop in gasoline stockpiles last week.

Oil’s uptick was also due to expectations that European power producers will likely switch away from natural gas and go for oil following Russia’s decision to halt flows through the Nord Stream pipeline.

The International Energy Agency (IEA) said it expects widespread switching from gas to oil for heating purposes, saying it will average 700,000 barrels per day (bpd) in October 2022 to March 2023, about twice the level of a year ago.

The IEA also said global observed inventories fell by 25.6 million barrels in July.

West Texas Intermediate Crude oil futures for October ended higher by $1.17 or about 1.3% at $88.48 a barrel.

Brent crude futures were up $0.71 or 0.76% at $93.88 a little while ago.

Data from the Energy Information Administration (EIA) showed U.S. crude inventories increased by 2.4 million barrels in the week ended September 9th.

The data said gasoline inventories dropped by 1.8 million barrels last week, while distillate stockpiles rose by 4.2 million barrels.

The EIA report also said crude stocks at the Cushing, Oklahoma delivery hub dropped by 200,000 barrels last week.

On Tuesday, a report from the American Petroleum Institute said crude inventories rose by 6 million barrels last week.
