Currently, General Motors is working on the development of lithium metal silicon and solid-state batteries as well as a production method that can be employed swiftly to improve and update the battery cell manufacturing processes.
While the Japanese brand Honda is making headway on its all-solid-state battery technology. The Japanese manufacturer has also constructed demonstration for all-solid-state batteries in Japan and moving closer to mainstream manufacturing this is not the first time that these 2 manufacturers join their hands. In 2013 these 2 companies begin working together on code development of next-generation fuel cell hydrogen storage technologies.
They also come together in 2018 when hand joined hands with General Motors EV battery module development efforts. Furthermore, companies that have ongoing relationships with Cruzan are working together on the development of cruise origin one of the first purpose-built fully autonomous vehicle designs for driverlessridese and delivery.
