Honda will install 120 50-kilowatt-per-hour DC fast chargers for electric vehicles to its Torrance, Calif., headquarters that will be accessible to the public.
The charging infrastructure would support drivers on the I-405 and I-110 freeways, and would primarily be used by Honda employees for their commuting.
The initial fee-based DC fast charger will open in early 2016 on Harpers Way, and will support CHAdeMO and SAE Combo standards.
Honda will offer several next-generation, advanced powertrain vehicles, including a new fuel cell vehicle (FCV) set to launch next year, followed by a new battery-electric model and a new plug-in hybrid model by 2018.
The new EV chargers on the Torrance campus will complement existing refueling options on-site, including compressed natural gas and hydrogen refueling stations.
