'GM recently manufactured the first battery pack for its upcoming extended-range electric vehicle: the Chevy Volt.'
'GM is the first major automaker to manufacture an advanced lithium-ion battery pack in the U.S., and Brownstown Township will be the first high-volume U.S. automotive lithium-ion battery manufacturing site.'
“This is an important milestone for GM – and a critical step in bringing the Chevrolet Volt to market,” said GM Chairman and CEO Ed Whitacre.
We hope they really are on the way with a bright future - time will tell.
