Honda electric crossovers to be produced by General Motors

General Motors will be a strategic partner

Honda Motor has been forced to make compromises in a changing car market. At the same time as Toyota, it has embarked on a course to create cars that use hydrogen fuel cells, and of the "purebred" electric cars, it has only the Honda E offered in Europe. GM will be the company's strategic partner in the US for electric vehicles.

A couple of years ago, Honda began collaborating with General Motors in the development of traction batteries, and last year the partners announced their intention to create an automatically-controlled electric vehicle for GM's Cruise Origin service. At the same time, it was announced that the American automaker would produce two electric car models for Honda using its own powertrains.

To date, it is known that Honda's debut electric cars in the U.S. market will be crossovers produced at General Motors. Under the Honda brand, such a crossover will appear in 2023 and production will be set up at a facility in Mexico, which will be converted to produce electric vehicles.

A year later, an Acura-branded crossover will be produced by General Motors in Tennessee. Both electric crossovers will be comparable in size to Cadillac's firstborn, the Lyriq electric car, which will hit the U.S. market in 2022. Whether Honda vehicles will have comparable performance is not yet specified, but Lyriq claims to be able to travel up to 500 km on a single charge. The crossover will be available in both rear-wheel drive and all-wheel drive versions.
