Report: GM to Build Honda and Acura a Pair of Electric Crossovers – Car and Driver

    It looks like the Honda partnership with GM to use the Ultium battery platform, which we told you about last spring, is already bearing electrified fruit. According to a report from Automotive News, GM plans on building two electric crossovers—one a Honda, one an Acura—at two different plants, with release dates in 2023 and 2024.

    For the Honda brand, a crossover will be built at GM’s Ramos Arizpe, Mexico, plant where General Motors currently builds the Equinox and Blazer. There have been reports that the factory would be transformed for EV production, but GM has yet to confirm that. The Honda is slated to go into production in 2023.

    On the Acura side, a second crossover is slated to start production in 2024 at the Spring Hill, Tennessee, facility alongside the upcoming 2023 Cadillac Lyriq. The vehicle is reportedly about the same size as the Lyriq. The Cadillac SUV is slated to go on sale in 2022.
