Vice-Chairman Bob Lutz
spoke to the Detroit Free Press on a wide range of product topics today and revealed some very important news. The first prototype battery packs for the Chevy Volt
have arrived at GM's test labs this week. Compact Power was first to the line with a pack for testing although the current units don't have a cooling system incorporated. For the bench testing that will be done on these first units, GM will rig up a cooling system. A123 Systems should be delivering their first pack sometime in December. After these units have been bench tested additional units will be installed into the first mule vehicles early in the new year.
