Honda's CFO feels their existing dealer network is well-positioned to service EVs.
"On a call to discuss Honda’s financial results, CFO Kohei Takeuchi claimed that the Honda-Sony sales model would be novel for the automaker. That could mean online, direct-to-consumer sales, and Takeuchi noted that the sales process would be entirely new for both Honda and Sony. He also said the companies are still hashing out the sales and service details but feel that the existing dealer network is well-positioned to step in for service needs.

Takeuchi’s comments will come as welcome news for Honda dealers, who have grown increasingly concerned about how they’ll fit into the company’s future. The company has struggled to meet production forecasts as parts shortages continue, and some of its most popular models are seeing shortages as a result."
