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.
