Some time ago, Honda just launched their newest electric SUV, the Prologue. The car, which is a product of the collaboration between the Japanese manufacturer and General Motors, has become one of the breakthroughs of these two manufacturers in welcoming the era of electrification. It seems that these two manufacturers from different countries will not only stop presenting car products, because there are other things they want to achieve together.
Both manufacturers are already planning what they will do after presenting the Prologue electric car. The collaboration between Honda and GM through the Honda Prologue seems to pave the way for Honda to be more serious in heading towards the electrification era.
Honda’s Senior Managing Executive Office, Shinji Aoyama said that they are in a transition period towards a zero-emissions era.
“A comprehensive collaboration is a mutual benefit, so that it is not only presenting quality electric car products, but also providing spare parts and several other supporting parts that are also environmentally friendly,” said Aoyama.
In the development of the Honda Prologue, the technology used comes from General Motors. As for the collaboration of several other developments such as parts and other technologies, Honda is the responsibility.
In further development as well, Honda and GM are also preparing spare parts factories which are being evaluated. The two manufacturers are also using this development as the most effective way to get the materials, workers and space needed for the next electric car development.
“From now on, both manufacturers will start preparing materials and selling spare parts which must be made as complete as possible. We have to think about everything and not just bring electric cars,” said Aoyama.
He also said that both Honda and GM will work together again to produce these supporting components that are made to the maximum extent possible, which will make people believe in electric cars more in the future.
