Japanese automaker Honda Motor Co today said its subsidiary Honda R&D (India) Pvt Ltd has opened a new Solution R&D center in Bengaluru, Karnataka. Honda R&D (India) is the research and development arm for Honda’s motorcycles and power products in India.

The new R&D Center will incorporate advanced mobility technologies into electric vehicle development more quickly. It will also work on software and connected services through ‘co-creating’ open innovation by adopting technologies and ideas of R&D companies.

It will also partner with companies with new ideas to develop new services and businesses beyond the scope of existing businesses and products from a long-term perspective.

Honda has set a global target of achieving carbon neutrality in all of its products and corporate activities by 2050. In the motorcycle business, Honda aims for carbon neutrality for all products in the 2040s. Meanwhile, the Indian government is also working to achieve net zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2070.

“Under such environmental change, Honda believes that in order to continue to be chosen by customers, the company needs not only to respond to electrification trends, but also to create new value outside of the established framework, and provide more attractive products and services,” the company said in a press release.
