Honda also has been increasing local production in emerging markets, where demand is on the rise for Honda power products to meet essential everyday needs. In China, Honda became the first Japanese manufacture to begin local production of small tillers.

The Honda Household Gas Engine Cogeneration Unit is powered by natural gas or liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) to generate electricity and supply hot water by utilizing the exhaust heat. The system’s utility was further enhanced in 2012 with the addition of an autonomous operation function that enables the system to start up and generate electricity even in a power outage or other emergencies. Honda has also developed the EU9iGP generator powered by home-use LPG, attracting widespread attention as a useful generator for emergencies.
