Honda's switch from carbs to fuel injection

What year did Honda totally abandon engines with carb? I suppose not the same time for each model, but I can't find a good info on it anywhere. I figure the process took several years across the model lines, just as
switching from RWD to FWD.

It did. And it differed between markets. North-American vehicles were the first to lose their carbs. Some other markets, with more relaxed emissions laws, had them until nearly the 2000s.
North-American Civic-based models last had carbs in 1987. Accord-based models last had carbs in 1990.
Non-Si Civics had throttle-body injection for 1988 to 1991. They called it "DPFI", or Dual Point Fuel Injection. Confusingly, this device resembled a carburetor, and had a carb-type air-cleaner.
I believe all Acura models since the beginning in 1986 have always had port fuel-injection.
I think Honda only ever made one RWD car, the S600; all other Honda cars until the S2000 were FWD, or AWD.

I didn't know about the '80s Hondas 'cause at that time I had an '83 Toyota Corolla which had carb and RWD. Interestingly though Toyota also made a FWD Corolla that year, I think the first time. I wonder if Toyota also switched to fuel injection about the same time as Honda.

The very first of the AE models!
I had two of those, and '81 and an '82. But both of them had the old T- series engines, so they were TE instead of AE. Both were Liftbacks (TE72).
Which one did you have? The 4-door Sedan, the 4-door Wagon, the 2-door Sedan, the 2-door Notchback, the 3-door Coupe, or the 3-door Liftback?

1983 was actually the last year for RWD-only. 1984 was the first year for both FWD and RWD platforms. The FWD body was a different model from AE. I'm too lazy to Google it at the moment...

For Corollas, 1990 was the last carbed model.

Actually, none of those. It was a 2-door SR5 sport coupe.

I think you're right because I bought the car new in the fall of '83 and it was then already the '84 model. My bad. My memory is not what it used to be. This is how it looked like (the silver-black two tone model below the top picture, on the left. I really liked that little car, both mechanically and look-wise.

The '84 Coupe was what was known as the Notchback in the '80-'83 generation, except that it lacked the hardtop windows of the '80-'83 generation.

Easy enough to do.
Shoot, even Honda's pretty much forgotten about that one. Of all the cars to forget about...

Wasn't that Honda's first rear-engine car? And the first with a V6? And the first with VTEC?
