The Japanese automaker has made a bold statement in its bid to win the 2020 FIA World Endurance Championship, unveiling its new Formula E electric racecar and announcing the 2020 Toyota GT-R for the first time in more than a decade.
“I’m confident we can achieve a win in the FIA Formula E Championship in 2020,” Honda CEO Takahiro Hachigo said at a press conference in Japan on Monday.
“We’re looking forward to the challenges ahead.
We believe we have a strong foundation that can build a strong championship for Formula E.”
Honda’s new Formula 4 car will be called the F4 Fit, a nod to its partnership with Toyota, and will be powered by a 4.2-litre, twin-turbocharged V6 engine.
The car will have a top speed of around 220kph (146mph) and it will have an EPA-rated range of 300 miles (425km) at its heart.
Honda says it plans to make the new car available to its customers in the autumn of 2020.
Toyota is also launching a new sportscar, the GT-Rs GT-S, in 2020.
This new GT-E sports car will feature a V8 engine and will also feature a supercharger for supercharging.
“Toyota has always been committed to creating cars that offer the best possible performance,” Hachigan said.
“For our Formula E debut, we have developed a new V8-powered GT-X sports car, a unique car that will be available to our customers in autumn 2020.”
These cars are a true demonstration of the Japanese brand’s commitment to innovation and the commitment to create a sportscar that is as close to its roots as possible.””
We have also made it clear that we will offer our customers the ability to purchase these cars as soon as they become available,” he said.
Toyotas performance car, the Toyota GTX-R, will also be available in 2020, and Hachigian said it will feature the same powertrain as the new GT2-based F4-series.”
There will be three generations of the GTX model,” he explained.”
In 2020, the new-generation GTX models will offer a more efficient hybrid powertrain, while the GT2 models will introduce a supercharged powertrain.
“The F4s will also have the same performance as the existing Toyota GT2s, but with a range of up to 400 miles.
The 2018 Toyota GT3, which debuted in 2015, was also unveiled at the press conference.
The new Formula 1 cars will be offered in 2021, but there is no confirmation on when that will happen.
Hachigi also confirmed that the new cars will only be available on the new grid of the FIA World Motor Sport Council, which will be set up to manage all the Formula E and Formula E E2 regulations.”
“The FIA World Sport Council will have the authority to regulate all the races on the grid.”””
It is our goal to bring the Formula 1 championship to the new world grid, which is what the FIA is currently trying to do with the FIA F3 World Championship,” he added.”
