GM and Honda team up for hydrogen, and Jaguar/Land Rover hopes to reinvent the dealership experience
January 31, 2017
General Motors and Honda team up to green up. The two companies announced a manufacturing joint venture to be operated in Michigan. Fuel Cell System Manufacturing, LLC, the name of the new company, will work within an existing GM battery plant, and will aim to mass produce hydrogen fuel cell systems for both General Motors and Honda to use in the future. All told, the investment totals $85 million, and should be up and running by 2020.
Jaguar Land Rover (JLR) hopes to make the dealership experience a little more pleasant...or at least a little more interesting. They've already begun sending VR units to select dealerships around the U.S. that will allow customers to look at, around, and inside of their vehicles - even ones that aren't out yet. JLR is calling it their Virtual Reality Experience, and already has one vehicle ready to go: the Land Rover Discovery.
