Honda Motor Co. plans to spend 5 trillion yen ($40 billion) on its push into electric vehicles over the next decade, as the Japanese automaker with the most aggressive EV ambitions moves to back its bold advance into next-generation cars with concrete plans.

Some 30 EV models will be launched by 2030 with production volume of more than 2 million vehicles a year, Japan’s second-biggest automaker said in a statement Tuesday. EVs will make up around 40% of the company’s fleet by the end of the decade, Honda said.
