A123 applies for $1.84 billion in DOE loans for battery manufacturing
A123 claims to be working with seven different automakers right now on 19 different vehicle programs. Those include General Motors for the plug-in hybrid Saturn Vue and the Chevy Volt and Chrysler with its electric programs through its ENVI division. A123 is also working with Better Place on its charging and battery swap network programs. There's no word so far on when a decision on the application might be made or construction might start.
