Honda has joined forces with General Motors (GM) to help move towards a greener future. This Honda and GM partnership will lead to the creation of two new electric vehicles, taking a big step into the future of emission-free driving.
The two new electrified vehicles will feature batteries from GM that are manufactured at its plants in North America. The cars’ interiors and exteriors, though, will be designed by Honda.
“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.”
GM will also contribute other aspects of its vehicles to these two jointly created rides. They will have the brand’s hands-free advanced driver-assistance technology, and will also feature the GM OnStar safety and security telematics services.
This is the second time Honda and GM have teamed up to create a new eco-friendly vehicle. The two brands previously worked together to create the Cruise Origin, which is a self-driving and shared electric vehicle that debuted earlier this year in San Francisco.
The new electric vehicles created in this partnership are expected to go on sale in the United States and Canada in 2024.
