Honda Motor prepares to build millions of electric vehicles (EV) by 2030 utilizing three new dedicated platforms, with one to be developed along with U.S. partner General Motors, a top executive at Honda said.

Shinji Aoyama, Honda’s global head of electrification, said the automaker will introduce an electric mini commercial vehicle in Japan in 2024, created on a new small EV platform. After this, a full-size electric model in North America in 2026, on a new large platform, according to Reuters.

Both platforms will be utilized for other models.

The third platform will be shared with General Motors, starting in 2027.

The two automakers in early April said they would develop affordable electric vehicles together for global markets.

Whether they will be based on Honda’s architecture or on General Motors’ platform has not been decided.

Honda has agreed to utilize GM’s next-generation Ultium battery, though the specifications are yet to be finalized.

Honda is preparing to build two million electric vehicles worldwide by 2030, including the mid-size models being developed with General Motors.
