Honda preps small EV with batteries from Chinese supplier, report says
Automotive News China | 2018/5/25

Honda Motor Co. plans to develop a micro electric vehicle with batteries supplied by Chinese battery giant Contemporary Amperex Technology Co., Japan¡¯s Nikkei news agency reported.

The EV will be adapted from the Honda Fit small car. It will be powered by Contemporary Amperex Technology¡¯s battery pack with a range up to 3 kilometers on one charge.

The electric car will be priced around 2 million Japanese yen (11,643 yuan). Honda expects annual sales of the EV to top 100,000 after launching sales in China and other markets in the first half of 2020, according to Nikkei. 

Honda is the latest global carmaker that has opted to use Contemporary Amperex batteries for EVs. 

Nissan Motor Co., the Volkswagen Group and Daimler AG have also tapped the Chinese company to supply batteries for EVs planned in China over the next few years. 

Other global automakers such as BMW AG and Hyundai Motor Co. have already sourced batteries from Contemporary Amperex Technology for EVs produced in China.
