Honda says working with GM on fuel cell manufacturing, parts procurement
TOKYO (Reuters) - Honda Motor Co. (7267.T: Quote) is in talks with General Motors (GM.N: Quote) over how to manufacture and procure parts for hydrogen fuel cell stacks as part of a technology development partnership, the Japanese automaker's chief executive said on Thursday.
CEO Takahiro Hachigo announced the update on the collaboration after Honda launched in Japan the Clarity, its first mass-market fuel-cell vehicle, which will run on hydrogen rather than petrol.
Honda and General Motors have been collaborating on developing fuel cell technology since 2013.
