Honda signs Nordic agreement on electric vehicle introduction

Honda, along with Toyota, Nissan and Hyundai, has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with organisations from Nordic countries supporting the market introduction of fuel-cell electric vehicles and hydrogen refuelling infrastructure between 2014 and 2017.

The MoU seeks to generate dialogue with public and private stakeholders in Norway, Sweden, Iceland and Denmark on accelerating the market introduction of the vehicles.

It follows an agreement signed by car manufacturers in Europe that identified 2015 as a potential point for market introduction in regions where hydrogen refuelling is available.
