Honda selects Port Colborne for first-of-its-kind EV separator plant

Local

In the latest chapter of Canada’s big push to make the country a global-leading electric vehicle (EV) manufacturing hub, Honda has chosen Port Colborne as the location of its new lithium ion separator plant.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, Premier Doug Ford, federal and provincial ministers, and several municipal leaders will all be in the south Niagara community today to announce details of the project.

Honda’s intention to build the plant, the first-of-its-kind in Canada, was revealed at the end of April when the company announced a $15 billion investment in the country’s EV supply chain and a joint partnership with Japan’s Asahi Kasei. However, the location of the new plant was not disclosed at the time.
