Default GM opens doors to Global Battery Systems Lab in Michigan

Live Blogging from GM Global Battery Systems Lab Opening

Today, GM opens the largest automotive battery lab in the United States. This new lab will serve as the nerve center for GMs global advanced battery engineering resources and help us bring electrically driven vehicles like the Chevrolet Volt as well as plug-in hybrid and hybrid-electric vehicles and fuel cell vehicles to market faster. Phil Colley, with GMs advanced technology communications team, is blogcasting live from Warren, Mich. until 1 p.m. EDT.

General Motors today opened the doors to its 33,000 square feet battery research and development plant in Michigan. GM says that the facility will play a major part in accelerating its move to electric-vehicles such as the upcoming 2011 Chevrolet Volt.
Known as the Global Battery Systems Lab, the Warren, Michigan plant will be used to test and build lithium-ion batteries for GM vehicles.
GM CEO Fritz Henderson and Jennifer Granholm were at the opening ceremony for the plant, which will employ 1,000 engineers.

The new global GM battery lab will benefit consumers across America by helping us advance the development of battery technology in the United States and put cleaner, more efficient vehicles on the road more quickly and affordably, Henderson. Our new lab improves GMs competitiveness by speeding the development of our hybrid, plug-in and extended-range electric vehicles, including the Chevrolet Volt.
GM said that it will use supply lithium-ion battery cells, electronic components and control hardware provided by LG Chem for the Chevrolet Volt.
