GM Will Officially Build Two EVs For Honda By 2024

This is the first step in Honda’s plan to go all-electric in North America by 2040.


  • Both will be SUVs.

  • One will wear a Honda badge while the other will be an Acura.


General Motors has been making headlines for the better part of a year following its commitment to electrification. Its Ultium battery technology is part and parcel of all this talk and it will also be part of Honda’s future electrification plans as GM will build two EVs for the Japanese automaker.

Earlier in April, Honda made an announcement that would see its entire North American fleet of vehicles would be electric vehicles by 2040. The first step will be two GM-built electric SUVs, one for Honda and one for Acura. The aim is to release these vehicles for the 2024 model year.

“The 2024 Acura EV is one of the Ultium-based products announced in April 2020,” an Acura spokesperson told Road & Track via email. “We are jointly developing two EV SUVs models using GM’s Ultium batteries for the North American market as 2024 model year, one for the Honda brand and one for the Acura brand.”

The two EVs will not be assembled at the same plant. The Honda version will be built alongside the Chevrolet Blazer and Equinox in Mexico while the Acura will have the Cadillac Lyriq as a neighbour at GM’s Tennessee plant.
