Mercedes and Cobasys Tangle over Batteries
Mercedes-Benz may be forced to cancel or delay the launch of its first hybrid - a version of the M-Class sport utility slated for production at the German automaker's Vance assembly plant - amid a dispute with a company that was to provide the battery pack for the vehicle.
In a lawsuit filed last week in Birmingham federal court, Mercedes says Cobasys LLC, a Michigan company with ties to Chevron Corp., is refusing to fulfill its commitment to produce the battery pack.
Cobasys' owners have been shopping the company to prospective buyers and hiding that information from Mercedes and its parent, Daimler AG, in an effort to influence the sale, the lawsuit says.
