Honda launched the T360 mini truck in 1963 to become the last major domestic automaker to enter the Japanese automotive market. A second model, the S500 sports car, then followed in the T360’s footsteps to form a pair of vehicles equipped with Japan’s first DOHC automobile engine and to make Honda’s debut with a full complement of our distinctive innovation. Then in 1964, Honda took up the challenge of Formula One with the intent of honing Honda’s leading edge technology at the pinnacle of racing. Ever since, Honda’s automobile business has been filled with a challenging spirit for creating new value in every area including technology development and manufacturing. And now following Honda’s 2030 Vision, Honda will strive to electrify two-thirds of global automobile unit sales in 2030.
