Honda will move towards a production model of a new electric crossover presented for the first time at the Auto China 2020 show and, according to the Automotive News website, this car is expected to be produced by the American company General Motors (GM). In addition, this manufacturer should be responsible for the production of two Honda electric models throughout this decade and the assembly should start in 2023.
According to the same website, the production of these two models should take place at the GM plant in Ramos Arizpe, Mexico, where this manufacturer already produces the Chevrolet Blazer and Equinox. Automative News also mentions the production of an Acura, Honda’s luxury brand, although it does not reveal the sources. This electric should be part of the same assembly line as the future Cadillac Lyriq, in Tennessee, USA. If confirmed, the production of this model should start only in 2024.
The two Honda EVs already confirmed should, like the Acura, have the same dimensions as the Lyriq and lithium batteries developed by GM, and could reach the market at the same time as the first electric from Cadillac.
