Share |

2010-Chevy-Volt This week during press conferences held at the North American International Auto Show, General Motors Chairman and CEO Rick Wagoner announce that the 2010 Chevrolet Volt will use battery packs manufactured by GM in the U.S.

The Volt is an extended-range electric vehicle that delivers up to 40 miles of gasoline- and emissions-free electric driving.

The GM facility will be the first first lithium-ion battery pack manufacturing plant operated by a major automaker in the United States.  It consists of lithium-ion cells that are grouped into modules, along with other key battery components. GM has been testing battery packs for the Volt, powered by cells from LG Chem. Compact Power INC., of Troy, Mich. Output is set to start in 2010.
