Volt Gets 50 MPG in Hybrid Mode
General Motors Co. will spend $8 million to double its U.S. battery lab in Warren, to speed development of electric vehicles and expand its expertise in advanced batteries -- an area expected to continue to grow in importance.
The Global Battery Systems Lab is part of GM's Technical Center campus. It tests battery cells, modules and packs to power electric vehicles, including hybrids and extended-range electric vehicles such as the Chevrolet Volt, which will go on sale in November.
GM plans to build a 33,000-square-foot addition to the 30,000-square-foot lab.
