Chevy Volt: Made in America - even the batteries
After a press conference the day before where every new, exciting and award winning GM vehicle was paraded before the media, the General's second North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) press conference featured a sparse stage populated only by the upcoming Checy Volt and GM Chairman and CEO Rick Wagoner.
Wagoner announced that the battery packs that will be used in the company's upcoming plug-in hybrid Volt will be manufactured in the United States. The 31,000 sq.-ft. facility (roughly the size of GMís display at the Detroit Auto Show) will be built in Michigan in 2009 with output of the battery packs in 2010.
