The Japanese company has purchased giant aluminum casting machines from Swiss-based Bühler Group and plans to transform its former gasoline engine production plant in the U.S. to produce next-generation vehicles with these equipments.

With a total order of 6 machines and plans to install all of them by the end of 2025, Honda will be able to produce nearly 1 million rear chassis per year.

The single-piece chassis decision, which Nissan also officially made yesterday, was first implemented in the automotive industry by Tesla in 2020.

The single-piece chassis design, where hundreds of structural components in a car are produced and assembled directly onto the vehicle body in a matter of minutes using large aluminum casting machines, has become a standard in the industry.

This shift allows electric vehicles to become lighter, cheaper, and safer. It also minimizes battery damage in the event of a collision.
