GM & Honda team up to deliver breakthrough battery for upcoming EVs

Globally renowned automotive giants GM and Honda have reportedly formed a joint venture to develop high-performance batteries.

Prior to the declaration of the deal, the Chief Officer for Automobile Operations & Managing Officer of Honda, Takashi Sekiguchi stated that the battery component collaboration would enable them to take a new step toward the realization of a sustainable society.

As per reliable sources, the new battery development collaboration will help manufacture next-gen batteries with a high energy density, faster-charging capability, and a compact size. The battery is touted to prove beneficial for the future products of both the companies, specifically across the North American belt.

According to reports, prior to this deal, GM and Honda had already demonstrated their collaborative efforts toward electrification via the futuristic hydrogen fuel cell development deal. The research teams of both the companies are currently working to launch a cost-effective commercial solution for hydrogen storage systems and fuel cells.
