General Honda motors and agree to develop next-generation battery technology and hydrogen storage

General Motors and Honda have agreed to jointly develop an fuel battery next generationAnd technologies hydrogen storage 2020 the year. This collaboration is based on knowledge sharing, economies of scale and common procurement strategies.

GM and Honda are leading innovation in fuel cells technologies. Between them they have more than 1.200 patents filed between 2002 and ranking 2012 1 No and No 2 in Patent Growth Index Clean Energy.

"This collaboration builds on the strengths of Honda and GM as leaders in the technology of hydrogen fuel cells," said Dan Akerson, chairman and CEO of GM. "This important technology has the potential to help reduce oil dependence and establish sustainable mobility."

Takanobu Ito, President and CEO of Honda said: "Of all the technologies CO2 zero emission battery electric vehicles have a definite advantage with a time range refueling as good as conventional gasoline cars and Honda. GM willing to accelerate the market penetration of this latest technology of clean mobility. I am very excited to be part of this collaboration to merge our core technologies of fuel cells and create a more affordable advanced system that will be equally or more capable and ".

Developed by General Motors and Honda and terms of electric batteries and hydrogen Programs
GM began in 2007 Project Driveway program has accumulated nearly 3 million miles of driving in the real world in a fleet of hydrogen-powered vehicles 119, more than any other automaker.

Honda, meanwhile, began renting the Honda FCX in 2002 85 and deployed units in the U.S. and Japan, including its successor, the FCX Clarity, which was named the World Green Car 2009. Honda has delivered these vehicles to customers in the U.S. and collected valuable data on actual fuel use of battery electric vehicles.

As previously announced, Honda plans to launch the successor to the FCX Clarity in Japan and the U.S. in 2015, and then in Europe. GM announced plans to produce fuel cells at a later date.

Electric and hydrogen batteries address many of the great challenges of today's cars - oil dependency, emissions, efficiency, range and recharge times. The fuel cell vehicles can run on hydrogen from renewable sources such as wind and biomass. The only vehicle emission fuel cell is water vapor.

In addition, fuel cell vehicles can have a range of up 643 miles of driving, can be recharged in just three minutes, and the fuel cell can be used in small, medium and large vehicles.
