WAKO Japan (Reuters) - Honda Motor Co said on Tuesday it would launch a plug-in hybrid and battery electric model in 2012 and mapped out other plans to put greener vehicles on the road as rivals catch up with more fuel-efficient cars.

Honda, Japan's No.2 automaker, was one of the world's only car makers to offer gasoline-electric cars during the past decade but has begun looking like a laggard without a "strong" hybrid or plans to mass-produce pure electric cars.
