GM, Honda Will Team Up to Develop Electric Cars
April 3, 2020—General Motors and Honda have teamed up to build two new electric cars for Honda, the companies announced.
The exteriors and interiors of the new EVs will be designed by Honda. The cars will use GM's Ultium batteries.
GM and Honda have worked on electric vehicles before, including work on fuel cells and the Cruise Origin, an electric, self-driving and shared vehicle, which was revealed in San Francisco earlier this year. Honda also joined GM’s battery module development efforts in 2018.
Honda will incorporate GM’s OnStar safety and security services into the two EVs, integrating them with HondaLink. Additionally, Honda plans to make GM’s hands-free advanced driver-assist technology available.
Sales for the cars are expected to begin in 2024.
