News Honda and GM pair up for new batteries

Honda and GM pair up for new batteries

Less than a decade ago, we would have never though that Honda would work out a deal with General Motors for EV battery development. The Japanese maker was already heavily invested in hybrid technology but then the Chevrolet Volt shocked the world.

Together, GM and Honda will be able to progress at a faster and more efficient pace. Honda is committed to advancing mobility while GM’s extensive ramped-up experience with batteries, thanks in no small part to the Bolt, has made them a leader in the field.

Honda and GM will develop new batteries and ultimately, GM will supply Honda with these news units. The General is planning on introducing 20 new vehicles by 2023 and Honda has their own similar plans.

This arrangement should yield interesting results. In a statement, GM said: “The next-generation battery will deliver higher energy density, smaller packaging and faster charging capabilities for both companies’ future products, mainly for the North American market.”
