TOKYO -- Honda Motor will offer early retirement packages for the next few years, looking to make room for younger engineers skilled in electric cars and software as the automobile industry transforms rapidly.

The incentive program debuts in April, targeting employees ages 55-63 during its first year. Eligibility in the program's second year and onward will cover those younger than 59.
