GM to build Honda EV in Mexico, Acura EV in Tennessee
Automotive News
January 5, 2021



General Motors plans to start building two battery-electric crossovers for Honda Motor Co. within four years: a Honda-branded vehicle at a GM plant in Mexico and an Acura-branded vehicle alongside the upcoming Cadillac Lyriq in Tennessee, according to two people familiar with the plans.

Production of the Honda crossover is slated to begin in 2023 in Ramos Arizpe, Mexico, where GM builds the gasoline-powered Chevrolet Blazer and Equinox, the sources said. Automotive News reported last year that GM likely would retool Ramos Arizpe Assembly for EV production by 2024, but GM has not confirmed the plans.

Production of the Acura crossover is scheduled to begin in 2024 in Spring Hill, Tenn., according to the sources, who asked not to be identified discussing future product plans. The Honda and Acura models are expected to be roughly the size of the Lyriq, which is scheduled to go on sale in early 2022.

Re: Report: GM Will Build Honda EV In Mexico, Acura EV In TN

Waiting to see what GM gets in return. How about an Accord repackaged as a Malibu? Return the Cruze based on the Civic?

It would keep GM in two important product categories until the last car is sold in favor of an CUV/SUV, helping dealers, and keeping people in the GM family.

RE: What does GM get? How about "EV Volume"?

An Accord and Civic based GM would be great.

GM (an American company) will build a Honda (a ***anese company) in Mexico.

You couldn’t make this up if you tried.
Maybe a Honda, (rebadged Daewoo) made in S. Korea sold in USA isn't so crazy after all?


For them to be ‘Great’ they would need GM power trains and electronic architecture, CVT, no thank you.
Stop, please, just stop................

The scramble to produce EVs is making for some strange bedfellows here in the early going.

GM has spread its "seed" quite wide over the years
I hope this GM/Honda SHACK UP gives GM incentive to actually TRY to make a "low cost" product worth having

I would rather have a GM automatic transmission then a Honda. Their engines haven't been anything special either in quite a while. What are they slapping in the Accord now, a 1.5t 4-pot? Sounds exactly the same as the 1.5t in the Malibu.......
