Honda dan General Motors Tubuh Perikatan di Amerika Utara

Industri automotif pada masa ini berada dalam masa ketidakpastian yang besar, dan oleh itu kebanyakan pengeluar bersaiz sederhana ingin membentuk pakatan untuk mendapat keuntungan dari skala ekonomi dan berkongsi kos penyelidikan & pembangunan. Baru-baru ini pakatan produk longgar Ford dan Volkswagen dibentuk untuk membantu memindahkan beberapa teknologi autonomi dan berkongsi kos pembangunan trak pikap antara kedua-dua pengeluar tersebut.

Hari ini, kita mendengar bahawa satu pakatan lain yang serupa mungkin wujud antara Honda dan General Motors di Amerika Utara. Kedua-dua syarikat itu sebenarnya sudah bekerjasama dalam berkongsi platform Kenderaan Elektrik dan telah bekerjasama selama lebih kurang 20 tahun untuk projek lain, jadi berita ini tidaklah mengejutkan sama sekali. Kedua-duanya menandatangani MoU yang tidak terikat yang mengesahkan pakatan yang longgar akan diperketatkan sedikit.

Perikatan antara kedua-dua syarikat akan menyaksikan kedua-dua pengeluar itu mula berkongsi platform kenderaan di pelbagai segmen, dengan rancangan pembangunan bersama untuk segera dimulakan dan kerja-kerja kejuruteraan dijangka akan dimulakan pada awal tahun depan. Mereka juga akan bekerjasama untuk mengurangkan kos yang berkaitan dengan pembelian, dan perkhidmatan yang berkaitan.

Tidak mungkin produk Honda generasi akan datang adalah kenderaan GM yang di tukar lencana, tetapi lebih seperti kedua-dua syarikat akan berkongsi struktur casis, enjin, dan elektrifikasi pada generasi kereta mereka yang akan datang. Kerja reka bentuk dan teknik khusus model kemungkinan besar masih akan dilakukan secara berasingan oleh kedua-dua syarikat.

Sekali lagi, perlu diingatkan bahawa pakatan ini bertujuan untuk menguntungkan syarikat-syarikat ini di Amerika Utara. Kita nantikan perkembangan selanjutnya.

Kenyataan Media

General Motors and Honda today announced they have signed a non-binding memorandum of understanding following extensive preliminary discussions toward establishing a North American automotive alliance. The scope of the proposed alliance includes a range of vehicles to be sold under each company’s distinct brands, as well as cooperation in purchasing, research and development, and connected services.

Under the proposed alliance, Honda and GM would collaborate on a variety of segments in North America, intending to share common vehicle platforms, including both electrified and internal combustion propulsion systems that align with the vehicle platforms. Co-development planning discussions will begin immediately, with engineering work beginning in early 2021.

The announcement builds on the agreement signed between the companies in April to jointly develop two all-new electric vehicles for Honda based on GM’s highly flexible global EV platform powered by Ultium batteries. The GM-Honda relationship, which began more than two decades ago, includes recent collaboration between the companies on fuel cells, batteries and the Cruise Origin shared autonomous vehicle.

Alliance to drive scale and improve performance through platform sharing

An alliance in North America between Honda and GM would leverage the best technologies and generate substantial cost efficiencies from shared vehicle platforms and propulsion systems, joint purchasing, potential manufacturing efficiencies and other collaboration efforts. This would enable both GM and Honda to make greater investments in advanced and next-generation technologies.

GM and Honda also plan to share R&D and engineering costs for select future co-developed vehicle and propulsion platforms. This would create substantial efficiencies and free-up capital, enabling both companies to meet the increasing requirements to invest in various future mobility trends and additional growth opportunities for each company’s distinct brands.

Collaboration in purchasing to drive scale and efficiency

Honda and GM plan to collaborate in joint purchasing activities to create further cost efficiencies by leveraging both company’s respective scale, insight and best practices. Purchasing collaboration would be focused on joint sourcing of materials, logistics and localization strategies.

R&D and connected services cooperation to exceed consumer expectations

Introducing advanced technology is imperative, given shifting consumer and regulatory requirements. To address this challenge efficiently, the alliance would explore combining the R&D efforts between the two companies related to advanced technology areas, including electrical architecture, advanced driver assist systems, infotainment, connectivity and vehicle-to-everything communication.

In April, the companies announced that Honda will incorporate GM’s OnStar safety, security and connected services into the two all-new electric vehicles for Honda based on GM’s global EV platform, seamlessly integrating them with HondaLink. Based on that collaboration, GM and Honda will explore further co-development opportunities for future connected services, including GM’s OnStar and infotainment.

All facets of the alliance will be governed by a joint committee, comprised of senior executives from both companies.
