WHAT IS A HONDA?
The History of Honda cars
Unlike Ford, Hondas are not the that old, but they have been around for a bit. The automotive manufacturing company was established September 24, 1948. Honda has two founding fathers Sichorio Honda and Takeo Fujisawa. Originally, Honda didn’t make cars. They made motorcycles. The first motorcycle that was made by Honda was the “Dream D”. This motorcycle was released 1949, within the second year or Honda being established. The Dream D had a 2-stroke and a 98cc motor.
Honda got into racing in 1968. Because their motorcycles were fast, the made good racing motorcycles. Honda motorcycles can reach speeds up to 186 miles per hour. The Honda CBR 1100XX Blackbird reached 190 miles per hour! This is the fastest that a Honda motorcycle has ever gotten to! People like Honda motorcycles for their dependability and reliability. Like Honda cars, their motorcycles are very reliable. It has to with how Honda engines are built!
After making Motorcycles for a while, Honda began to release cars. The first car that Honda made was the N600. In 1976 the Honda Accord was born. Now if we look ahead into the future, we see the very first Hybrid Honda being introduced into the car world. This happened in 1999.
The next major advancement made to Hondas was the “Fuel Cell Technology” vehicle in 2008. This can generate hydrogen by using renewable sources. Fuel cell technology uses solar power! In September 2017 Honda’s first all electric car was made. It was called the Honda e. The Honda e is not yet released to America… and the chances of it being released to us, are slim to none.
