Takanobu Ito
Could prompt Honda to jump on the EV bandwagon

While Honda is usually a pioneer in the automotive industry with innovative devices and vehicles, the company has been a bit behind when it comes to EV production in comparison to other auto giants. Honda has posed the argument that EV vehicles are far from being successful because of a lack of any real advances in battery technology. Now, it seems as though Honda may be considering stepping up to the plate and attempting a battery-related breakthrough, and they want China to help.

"If there is a suitable chance, we hope to work with China to develop batteries," said Takanobu Ito, Honda's chief executive officer.

Ito's words have caused speculation as to whether Honda will produce EV's or not (on the condition that it can revolutionize the design of automotive batteries). This could put Honda up in the ranks with other automotive competitors participating in the making of electric vehicles.

Honda could certainly use the boost into the greener world of EV's, but choosing China as their partner in search of a better battery might be a problem since the company had to stop production in China due to three of its four plants going on strike in order to obtain better wages in the southern coastal province of Guangdong. 

There is no definitive answer or dates regarding if and when Honda will start EV battery research in China, but it seems as though they have some issues to iron out before the company can leap into a partnership with China.
