Honda, GM Announce Jointly Developed Electric Vehicles

General Motors and Honda recently announced an agreement to jointly develop two new Honda electric vehicles (EV) using GM’s global EV platform powered by proprietary batteries. The vehicles are scheduled to be released for the 2024 model-year.

“This collaboration will put together the strength of both companies, while combined scale and manufacturing efficiencies will ultimately provide greater value to customers,” said Rick Schostek, executive vice president of American Honda Motor Co. Meanwhile, U.S. Sen. Rob Portman (R-OH) and U.S. Rep. Tim Ryan (D-Niles) celebrated the news, noting that the cars would use batteries made at the forthcoming Lordstown plant. 4/7/2020
