We heard already that GM has picked a battery supplier, and this has got to be good news for either Continental/A123 Systems or LG Chem/Compact Power Inc. Lutz continued: "It's almost scary we are not seeing any problems with the batteries."
There is one big potential flaw, though: price. Durability and longevity predictions are showing that the batteries will work as hoped, but in their cost projections, GM is expecting each and every Volt will need a new battery pack while it is under warranty. Thanks to Dave T.
