A123 Systems may be picking up another customer for their lithium ion batteries. Renault and Nissan, which up until now had been working with batteries from Nissan's partnership with NEC, are considering cells from the Massachusetts based supplier. A123 has a partnership with Continental to supply development batteries for the Chevy Volt program and another with Cobasys for the plug-in hybrid Saturn Vue. Nissan has said that they are considering using batteries from different suppliers for different markets. With Nissan and Renault teaming up with Project Better Place to promote EVs in Israel, it will be interesting to see what they come up with in the next few years.
