Honda to bring plug-in electric cars to U.S.

Once considered a step behind in plug-in hybrids and electric vehicles, Honda on Tuesday outlined plans to introduce a range of plug-in electric vehicles to the U.S. and Japan.

Honda said it will introduce both a battery-electric and a plug-in hybrid to the U.S. in 2012. It also said that it plans to use lithium-ion battery technology in the next-generation hybrid Civic, which will be introduced in 2011.

Among the planned models are an all-electric, or battery-electric, “commuter vehicle” and a plug-in hybrid system for mid-size and larger vehicles, both of which will be introduced to the U.S. in 2012.
