Sometimes, two heads are better than one. That’s why Honda has teamed up with General Motors (GM) to help take them into the future of electric vehicles. The Honda and GM partnership will result in the building of two new electric cars, allowing both brands to expand their electrified lineup.
The new EVs will use GM batteries that are manufactured at its plants in North America. Honda will design the interiors and exteriors of the vehicles.
“This expanded partnership will unlock economies of scale to accelerate our electrification roadmap and advance our industry-leading efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions,” said Rick Schostek, Executive Vice President of American Honda Motor. “We are in discussions with one another regarding the possibility of further extending our partnership.”
Along with utilizing GM’s batteries, the vehicles will also use the brand’s hands-free advanced driver-assistance technology. It will also use the OnStar® safety and security telematics services, while still being badged as a Honda vehicle.
This isn’t the first time that Honda and GM have partnered up. They previously worked together on the Cruise Origin, an electrified vehicle that was self-driving and meant for sharing city rides. It launched earlier this year in San Francisco.
Honda expects the two electrified vehicles to go on sale in the United States and Canada in 2024.
This newest partnership between Honda and GM is exciting, and we can’t wait to see you here at Bryan Honda when the two mystery EVs finally hit the road.
