For Honda, solar power and electric cars go hand-in-hand. Because of this, the Japanese carmaker recently announced that they will continue going green with the renewal of their partnership with SolarCity, a company that provides the public with clean energy through solar power. The renewed SolarCity partnership will provide Honda and Acura customers and dealerships with the opportunity to have more available and affordable solar power. It also encourages more consumers to look beyond fuel-efficient cars to go green.
“The first phase of this partnership has proven that Honda drivers have a high affinity for solar power, while owners of solar-powered homes have a high affinity for Honda products,” said Steven Center, Vice President of the Environmental Business Development Office of American Honda Motor Co., Inc. “As we look toward a future in which renewable energy will be an increasingly pervasive fuel source for personal mobility products, we are excited about capitalizing on the technological, environmental, and market opportunities available through partnerships of this nature.”
The two companies are looking to appeal more to both owners of solar powered homes and plug-in electric vehicles, and previously worked together to create the Honda Smart Home in the U.S.
