Bisnis, JAKARTA — Honda and General Motors (GM) announced a collaboration to produce hydrogen fuel cells in the United States through Fuel Cell System Manufacturing (FCSM), LLC. Despite market downturns, manufacturers are continuing to develop fuel-cell vehicles.

These hydrogen fuel cell units have the advantage of durability due to highly corrosion-resistant materials and resistance to low temperatures. This system will be used in Honda's hydrogen fuel cell vehicles (FCEVs), scheduled for launch in 2024.

To reduce costs in development and production, the companies have implemented various approaches, such as reducing the use of precious metals, increasing economies of scale through large-scale production, and standardizing the supply of spare parts. With these efforts, the cost of fuel cell systems has been reduced by a third.

FCSM was established in January 2017 and is the first collaborative company in the automotive industry focused on fuel cell system production. GM's battery manufacturing plant has a total investment of $85 million and is built on a 6,503 m2 land in Brownstown, Michigan, United States.
