AutoBeta( Report--

Honda, Japan's two biggest automakers, is in contact with Nissan to jointly develop a standardized on-board operating system based on which to build the next generation of cars, according to reports from Nippon Keizai Shimbun, NHK and other media. At the same time, the report also pointed out that the two companies will also cooperate in the installation of battery chargers to improve the competitiveness of electric vehicles.

The report said that with the emergence of electric vehicles and auxiliary driving technology, the complexity of the vehicle control system has greatly increased. Honda and Nissan hope to develop a new on-board operating system to achieve integrated control of equipment that needed to be controlled separately in the past, and is committed to "design standardization" of equipment such as accelerators and brakes as well as driving support systems. The two companies are currently in final talks, and as of press time, neither side responded to the news.

As early as March this year, Honda and Nissan signed a memorandum of understanding to carry out comprehensive cooperation on the electric vehicle business, including joint procurement, joint development of power platforms, generalization of spare parts, etc., hoping to reduce costs through the integration of resources and enhance the competitiveness of electric vehicle products. At that time, in response to the cooperation between the two sides, Nissan President and CEO Cheng Uchida said: "it is important to prepare for the accelerating pace of transformation in the medium to long term, and we have reached this agreement on the basis of mutual understanding." that is, Honda and Nissan face common challenges. " Toshihiro Mibe, president and CEO executive of Honda, also said: "in this once-in-a-century transition period in the automotive industry, we will study the potential for cooperation between Nissan and Honda. Our research standard is whether the synergy of the technology and knowledge cultivated by our company can make us an industry leader by creating new value for the automotive industry."

In addition, Honda, Nissan and Toyota announced on May 28 that they would jointly develop next-generation engines, using their technology accumulation to make internal combustion engines compatible with alternative fuels such as electronic and biofuels. At present, the three car companies have made progress in developing smaller and more efficient engines, and the three parties have reached a consensus that they will pursue multi-path development and combine internal combustion engines with electric equipment, so that engines and electric vehicle manufacturing platforms can be used together to meet more stringent emission restrictions. In addition, the cooperation between the three car companies also includes the integrated optimization of motors, batteries and other electric drive units.

According to Automotive Industry concern, whether it is the cooperation between Honda and Nissan, or between Honda, Nissan and Toyota, Japanese manufacturers work closely together to keep warm in order to achieve better development and reduce development costs at the same time.

In the field of electrification, it is not too late for both Honda and Nissan to set foot in the field of electric vehicles. Unfortunately, Honda and Nissan are not smooth on the road of electrification transformation. At present, electrification has gradually become the mainstream of the development of the automotive industry. Honda and Nissan are considering cooperation in engine systems and charging business. It is also a trend to comply with the trend. As for the new era of transition from fuel vehicles to energy vehicles, it remains to be seen whether Japanese automakers, including Honda and Nissan, can adapt to the trend and thoroughly transform to meet the challenges of the future automobile market.

According to the plan, Nissan will increase its sales of 1 million vehicles and launch 30 new models by the end of fiscal year 2026, of which 16 are electric vehicles and 14 are internal combustion engines, achieving cost parity between electric and fuel vehicles by 2030. Honda will invest 10 trillion yen in electrification by 2030 and launch 10 all-electric models in China by 2027, with 100 per cent of all-electric vehicles sold by 2035.
