Quick Hit: Chrysler Picks Battery Maker GM Snubbed

Leave a comment

I find this interesting: Chryler LLC has chosen A123 Systems Inc. of Watertown, MA. to supply lithium-ion batteries and other equipment for electric cars it hopes to have in showrooms beginning in late 2010.  This news came just two months after GM was reported to have rejected A123 for LG Chem Ltd. to manufacture the batteries for their Volt.  I have to say, Chrysler deserves some kudos for this decision.  A123 is an American company – so this decision means American jobs are secured in the attempt to keep Chrysler alive.  Chrysler made as many bad decisions in the past few decades as GM and Ford.  It’s nice to finally see a good one.
