BMW on the lookout for battery partner
Klaus Draeger, BMW's head of R&D, said, "We are examining the products of Korean suppliers like LG Chem, and we are talking to Japanese suppliers as well as U.S.-based suppliers like A123 Systems Inc." These units are destined for the upcoming Megacity small car that the German automaker just announced. Currently, BMW uses batteries sourced from AC Propulsion for its MINI E.
