Honda Is Betting Big On EVs
Honda hopes to meet these lofty targets by working together with GM, and plans to use GM’s Ultium platform (shared with the Cadillac Lyriq) and battery system to get the Prologue off the ground. At the same time the two brands are also working on an electric Acura SUV. These two new models will be assembled by GM, but Honda plans to assemble its own EVs based on the Honda developed e-Architecture at Honda plants in North America.
According to Dave Gardner, executive vice president of national operations at American Honda Motor Co, Honda will focus its EV efforts in states like California, Florida and Texas, while adding more hybrid-electric models to its lineup across the rest of the US.
