Honda’s engine development team unveiled its latest engine at the company’s new headquarters in San Francisco, California.
The new engine, which is the result of more than three years of work, is powered by a new, smaller and lighter version of the Honda Powerplants 3.0C gasoline engine, a fuel injection unit and a lithium ion battery.
The engine uses a direct injection system to increase the efficiency of the motor’s pistons, and it is also lighter than the previous generation.
It uses less power to produce the same torque, which helps to achieve lower emissions and lower maintenance costs.
Honda said the new engine is able to generate 500 kilowatts of power per kilogram, which works out to more than twice the fuel efficiency of a conventional engine, according to a Honda press release.
“This is a new era for the Honda engine,” said Honda chief engineer Hiroshi Iida, referring to the new design.
“We are able to bring the power of the latest Honda Powerplant 3.5C engine to market.
It’s more powerful, more fuel efficient, and more efficient than ever before.”
This engine is part of a larger Honda effort to develop new gasoline engines for the electric vehicle market.
Honda is currently testing a new version of its Engine 3.3C gasoline powered by hydrogen.
The company is also testing the FuelCell engine for its electric vehicles.
In October, Honda said it had received $8.6 billion in funding from Japan’s SoftBank, and has already invested $3.5 billion in the fuel cell market, a move that could be one of the biggest investments in the technology for the company in a decade.
Hondas announcement comes as a number of automakers have announced new plug-in hybrid and electric vehicle options, including Nissan, Toyota, and Volkswagen.
The automaker also announced that it would begin to build electric vehicles in China this year.
Hindustan Motors, which runs the Japanese automakers, said it plans to launch its first electric vehicles by 2020.
