TOKYO -- Honda Motor's new plan to sell more electric cars has sparked little enthusiasm among investors, judging by the automaker's share price. Given its chronically low margins on autos, that may come as no surprise.
Honda aims to release 30 EV models by 2030, the Japanese automaker said this month. A year earlier, the company pledged to stop selling gasoline autos by 2040. Its new strategy seeks to answer critics who said Honda's commitment lacked specifics.
