Charged up by hybrid batteries

Abstract:
Q. You have a contract with GM to develop lithium ion chemistry for a plug-in hybrid version of the Saturn Vue. But GM Vice Chairman Bob Lutz, in touting the nanotechnology battery technology of your competitors - A123 Systems - commented that "all lithium ion chemistries are not created equal."

A. He is absolutely right: All chemistries are not created equal.

We have a chemistry that we're going to production in next year. It is safe, it is reliable, it performs great, and we're putting it in vehicles. I would not change a thing with what we're doing there. It works, we're confident in it, and so are our customers.

He's absolutely right when it comes to plug-ins, and that's the solution that we're all out there looking for. Is it radically different from what we're doing now?

I can't tell you, but it'll be different.
