, Honda will rely on a whole new platform homemade, baptized e:Architecture and dedicated to electric vehicles. Models using this platform will first be launched in the United States, before being released worldwide.

In North America, Honda has partnered with General Motors to develop two large electric vehicles, which will use the same “Ultium” battery technology as the new GMC Hummer EV, and which will be launched in 2024. In Japan, it will be a small 100% electric “kei car” which is scheduled for 2024: for this, Honda will use raw materials and batteries from Japan, to support the local economy of its country of origin.
