General Motors has not yet issued battery contracts for the E-Flex program

Several articles floating around the internets today including this one are referencing an Automotive News article published this morning on building the battery supply chain for the General Motors E-Flex program. Most of those stories are assuming from the wording of the AN article that GM has issued battery development contracts for the Volt program. A General Motors spokesman confirmed this afternoon that no new contracts have yet been issued for the E-Flex program. Earlier this year General Motors gave contracts to Cobasys/A123 and Johnson Controls/Saft to develop batteries for the Saturn Vue PHEV but the E-Flex deals should be coming soon.
