Honda And LG Announce Plan To Build $3.5 Billion EV Battery Plant In Ohio

Will bike batteries be involved?

Honda and LG Energy Solution announced a plan to construct a $3.5 billion plant in Ohio on October 11, 2022, with the sole purpose of producing batteries for Honda and Acura electric vehicles. Honda will also invest an extra $700 million to equip three of its current Ohio factories for the manufacturing of electric cars and component parts.

2,527 new jobs are anticipated to be created in Ohio as a result of the expansion of current EV factories and the new battery factory combined. Given Honda’s lengthy history of manufacturing in Ohio—which, let’s not forget, began with motorcycles—it is easy to comprehend why this location was chosen. Of course, it didn’t hurt that the state gave Honda tax incentives worth roughly $156 million to make this kind of investment.

Although the Marysville Motorcycle Plant is no more, the moto- and automaker has very active automotive facilities in Marysville, East Liberty, and Anna. Under the current plans, all three of these facilities will receive retooling to make EV and component manufacturing possible.

Construction of the new Honda and LG battery plant is scheduled to start in 2023 and be completed by the end of 2024. American Honda Motor Company executive vice president Bob Nelson told the Columbus Dispatch that the facility location, in the Mid-West Mega Commerce Center near Jeffersonville, was chosen for multiple reasons. Among these were proximity to the existing Honda plants in the state, availability of labor in the area, and accessibility of resources.

The date of this announcement was no accident, either, as it marked the 45th anniversary of the day that Honda first announced the details of its Maryville facility in the state. In a way, it’s fitting, because it represents a new era for Honda, which plans to make Ohio it’s North American electric vehicle hub. Production of batteries in the new facility is expected to begin before the end of 2025.

What does this indicate for Honda’s future ambitions for electric motorcycles? Unfortunately, that isn’t entirely obvious yet—especially in light of the Maryville Motorcycle Plant’s closure a few years ago. It’s possible that Honda could produce some of its electric motorcycle batteries in this facility alongside the electric car, SUV, and truck batteries that will undoubtedly take precedence. This is because the U.S. Inflation Reduction Act stipulates that in order for electric vehicles to qualify for federal tax credits, their batteries must be made in the U.S.

Will batteries eventually be produced here that follow standards set by the Swappable Batteries Motorcycle Consortium that Honda co-founded? It’s all speculation at this point—but as and when we have more concrete information, we’ll be sure to keep you updated.

This Is Where Honda Will Build Its American EV Hub

  • Honda revealed plans for a new joint venture with LG Energy Solution that will produce battery modules in Ohio.
  • The automaker plans to retool several of its plants in Ohio to produce EVs based on the e: Architecture platform set to arrive after 2025.
  • The upcoming Honda Prologue and its Acura sibling will be built on GM’s Ultium platform before Honda sets up EV production stateside.

With the Honda Prologue on the way, the Japanese automaker is finally serious about getting into the EV game. But the recently revealed electric crossover is just the start—Honda will need a plant for EVs and batteries here in the US soon, as it sketches out the rest of its lineup set to arrive after 2025.

This week the automaker revealed just where its EV center will be based, with several sites in Ohio slated to become Honda’s electric hub.

Honda said it would invest $700 million to retool its Marysville, East Liberty, and Anna Engine Plants for the production of electric vehicles, which is expected to begin in 2026. In a joint venture with LG Energy Solution (LGES), the company also intends to invest $3.5 billion in the construction of a battery module manufacturing facility in Ohio.

The announcement was timed to coincide with the anniversary of the Marysville plant’s launch announcement from 45 years ago, on October 11, 1977. The vehicles that will be produced in Ohio will sit on Honda’s own e: Architecture, rather than GM’s Ultium platform that will underpin the upcoming Prologue.

“Honda is proud of its heritage in Ohio, where we started more than 40 years ago with the establishment of our US manufacturing facilities. We are now investing in a workforce that will develop the power source for our upcoming Honda and Acura electric vehicles as we expand Honda’s cooperation with Ohio “Bob Nelson, executive vice president of American Honda Motor Co., Inc., stated.

Honda pulled the plug on its Clarity EV in 2019.

The joint venture with LGES will be based in Fayette County, with construction set to start in 2023 and expected to be completed by the end of 2024. Honda expects the plant to feature an annual production capacity of 40 GWh, with the automaker set to start producing battery modules using the advanced pouch-type lithium-ion cells by 2025.

According to Bob Nelson, executive vice president of American Honda Motor Co., Inc., “this is a very tough time for our entire industry, but it’s also a very exciting time as Honda invests in full electric car production in the Buckeye State.” Nelson continued, “Honda has produced hybrid-electric vehicles in Ohio for a number of years, and the experience and knowledge of our workers in production, product development, and buying will serve as a crucial foundation as we move toward an electrified future.

It is worth noting that the upcoming e: Architecture, and even the Honda Prologue, won’t be the automaker’s first EVs to be sold stateside.

New Plant for Ultium Battery Materials on the Way

Honda discontinued the Clarity Electric sedan in 2019 due to weak sales, which would account for why you probably haven’t seen one on the road. The sedan was formerly available in a few areas only a few years ago. Furthermore, Honda now sells an electric hatchback in Europe. However, in order to gain market share, its mass-market electric vehicle initiatives in North America have taken a very circuitous route. As a result, Honda is currently behind the curve, relying on GM technology for just two models, one of which is badged as an Acura until the arrival of e: Architecture models in 2026.

While it’s yet not known what the EV market of 2026 will look like, right now it’s clear that until then Honda and Acura will have just one EV model each to choose from.

Whether that timing is just right or too late given the current demand for EVs—and how it positions Honda for the second part of the decade—remains to be seen.
