According to Honda CEO Toshihiro Mibe, the company is working on electric sports vehicles, 

and an R&D center prototype that may be an all-electric NSX replacement already exists. 

Although there are few specifics, Mibe said that work is "steadily proceeding." 

The CEO hinted that the new sporty EV would be a revolutionary experience, saying it will have a "completely different taste" than any previous performance vehicle from the company.

While it studies the EV sports car market, Honda is taking its time building the new sports vehicle.

Of course, there's also a possibility that this is the S2000 roadster's battery-powered replacement. "We're still undecided about time and mass manufacturing. However, I personally want to see it through," Mibe said to Autocar.
