Toronto, Ontario -- January 18, 2019 –- Honda Canada has announced a partnership with Toyota Canada and Transition energetique Quebec, to invest in a hydrogen infrastructure project on the south shore of Montreal. The project, which is scheduled to be completed by the end of 2019, will help to reduce greenhouse gas emissions in Canada and further diversify the country’s clean mobility options.
News of the partnership and planned investment was announced today at the Montreal International Auto Show.
"For Honda Canada, this investment in hydrogen infrastructure is about supporting progress in clean mobility options," said Jean Marc Leclerc, senior vice president of sales and marketing, Honda Canada Inc. "In the short term, this investment will create an environment where we can continue to test our products and educate Canadians on the vast potential of hydrogen-powered vehicles today knowing that mass adoption could take some time."
The investment by Honda can be seen as a building block to the company’s larger goal of creating a carbon-free future by 2030. Currently, the Japanese manufacturer’s fleet has one of the lowest overall green house gas emissions in the industry, something Honda attributes to its portfolio of low-emission vehicles, led by both highly efficient internal combustion engines and hybrid powertrains.
