General Motors (GM) and Honda have agreed to jointly develop two all new Electric Vehicles (EV) for Honda, based on GM's highly flexible global EV platform powered by proprietary Ultium batteries.

The exterior and interior of the new EVs will be exclusively designed by Honda, and the platform will be engineered to support the driving character of Honda's cars.

Production of these Honda EVs will combine the development expertise of both companies, and they will be manufactured at GM plants in North America. Sales are expected to begin in the 2024 model year in Honda's United States and Canadian markets.

GM and Honda have an ongoing relationship around electrification. This includes work on fuel cells and the Cruise Origin, an electric, self-driving and shared vehicle, which was revealed in San Francisco earlier this year. Honda also joined GM's battery module development efforts in 2018.

As part of the agreement to jointly develop EVs, Honda will incorporate GM's OnStar safety and security services into the two EVs, seamlessly integrating them with HondaLink. Additionally, Honda plans to make GM's hands-free advanced driver-assist technology available.
