Honda and panasonic are considering working together to develop portable batteries - Update by chengzhu
Honda and panasonic are considering working together to develop portable batteries for motorcycles in a bid to gain a foothold in the highly competitive zero-emission car market, foreign media reported.
The two companies are experimenting in Indonesia and using panasonic's detachable lithium-ion battery on Honda's electric motorcycles to test their performance, according to industry sources.
Japan's New Energy and Industrial Technology Development Organization (NEDO) has decided to fund the project.
Honda is looking to develop batteries for electric scooters that could be used as a source of power for homes in Japan and other Asian markets (V2G).
In addition, Honda is committed to transforming the car industry's electrification and last month signed a deal with gm to jointly develop a new generation of electric-car batteries.
Panasonic is also in talks with Toyota to jointly develop and produce electric vehicle batteries.
Panasonic is also actively working to expand into new segments of the market as its home appliances business is being buffeted by its Asian rivals.
