What is Honda working on with General Motors?

Despite being competitors, it is not unheard of for different automotive manufacturers to team up on certain initiatives if the end result seems both profitable and as though it could advance the future of mobility. That was certainly the foundation of one of the most recent partnerships in the industry, which sees Honda team up with General Motors in order to work on next-generation battery development.

“This new, multiyear agreement with Honda further demonstrates General Motors’ capability to innovate toward a profitable electric portfolio. GM’s decades of electrification experience and strategic EV investments, alongside Honda’s commitment to advancing mobility, will result in better solutions for our customers and progress on our zero emissions vision.”

- Mark Reuss, Executive Vice President of Global Product Development, Purchasing and Supply Chain, General Motors

Next-gen Battery Development

Honda The Power of DreamsThe agreement that the two manufacturers came to revolves around advanced chemistry battery components, including both the battery’s cell and module. This agreement will vastly speed up the electrification plans for both companies and will result in future electric vehicles being powered by batteries with higher energy density and improved charging times all inside a much smaller package.

This is just the next step in General Motors and Honda’s proven relationship in regard to electric vehicles. The duo first teamed up for a manufacturing joint venture – an industry first – that will result in an FCEV around 2020. We’re excited to see the fruits of this partnership come to bear down the road and will be sure to keep you updated with how the partnership’s progress is coming along as news becomes available. We cannot wait to see what kind of vehicles result from this team up.
