GM expands Honda venture via battery tie-up


General Motors agreed to collaborat­e with Honda Motor on electric-vehicle batteries, expanding cooperatio­n between the automakers on nextgenera­tion powertrain­s for cleaner cars. Honda intends to use cells and modules from the largest US automaker in electric vehicles built mostly for the North American market. The two already have a joint venture to produce hydrogen fuel cell systems by around 2020. The deal enables Honda to get battery-powered models to market faster. GM will be able to spread developmen­t costs over Honda’s sales volume once the two companies are both selling cars.
