USA: Auto show highlights battery technology

DETROIT, Mich. (WZZM) — Incentives from the state helped bring jobs to West Michigan in the form of alternative energy, specifically lithium ion battery production in Holland.

Despite slow sales, hybrid vehicles are capturing attention at the North American Auto Show.

Its simple to charge but a complex process to make batteries in Holland.

“Every Volt we sell in the U.S. market has a battery and every battery will have an LG Chem, ” says Chevy Volt spokesman Rob Peterson.

General Motors chose LG Chem to make the rechargeable lithium ion battery for the Volt in 2009. Because the Volt uses both gas and electric it needs to be a “do everything” kind of battery. While there’s not perfect formula, experts say LG Chem does it as well as any company and on a larger scale.

Peterson compares the battery to an olympic athlete.
