As a part of the Honda/Acura global brand, Drivemode innovates how future mobility experience should be and delivers great experience and software for the global automaker’s customers.


We are transforming Honda to be the No. 1 vehicle software company in the world

Honda/Acura vehicles

We are working on a vehicle companion app & platform for Honda's next generation electric vehicles. The app will be a critical part of connected service offering for any future Honda & Acura vehicles globally.

This is just the beginning for us; we expect to expand our scope into other software driven areas such as IVI (In-vehicle infotainment).

We are working closely with Honda's industry-leading hardware and vehicle experts to design the software and hardware as one experience for users.

Honda motorcycles

We are building a modern software platform for Honda's new electric motorcycles. The platform, including mobile app and infotainment system, will be deployed in many countries.

Not only working with Honda's motorcycle engineers as one team, we also do our own in-house hardware prototyping to enable us to learn and move quickly. The goal is to provide seamless motorcycle rider experiences with deeply integrated software and hardware.
