CATL will supply Honda with about 56 GWh of lithium-ion EV batteries before 2027, which plans to launch more than 20 electric vehicles by 2025.
"Customer-centreed is the philosophy that CATL has always insisted on. We hope that we can establish more efficient communication channels, more timely response mechanisms, and establish a closer relationship for further cooperation," said Naosumi Tada, head of CATL's Japanese subsidiary. "Honda and CATL have been worked closely on advanced and reliable battery solutions for Honda's future electric vehicle applications. In the future, we will support Honda not only in China, Japan, but also to create world-leading electric vehicles that serves global consumers."
