GM's Denise Gray Gives Glimpse of Its Battery Future
ANN ARBOR, Mich. -- In a packed Stamps Auditorium of the Charles R. Walgreen Jr. Drama Center, University of Michigan students and visitors received a charge from the special appearance of Denise Gray, Director of Hybrid Energy Storage Systems for General Motors.
For just over an hour, Gray addressed the matters of future change and production in an address entitled “GM - Leading the Electrification of the Automobile: Engineering for the 21st Century.” It was during her presentation that Gray discussed in extensive detail a special battery pack that could eventually be put to use by vehicles, such as the new Chevrolet Volt, in the upcoming years.
The product, she said, would be comprised of a lithium-ion combination for the sake of not risking the use of hazardous chemicals, while running on an estimated 300 volts. She added that GM would be the first major automaker to mass produce such batteries in a single facility.
