GM to Launch US Battery Plant


GM will use its press conference tomorrow at the 2009 Detroit Auto Show to announce the opening of a new lithium-ion battery production facility in Michigan according to a report in the New York Times. A new advanced battery test facility located at the company's global electric-vehicle engineering center in Warren, Michigan is also part of the plan. The two facilities will provide battery packs for the upcoming 2011 Chevrolet Volt and possibly a production version of the Cadillac Converj, a two-door coupe with uses the same Voltec propulsion system as the Volt. - Ed Hellwig, Senior Editor, Inside Line
