There were initial reports after GM received the first CPI/LG Chem Chevy Volt battery pack that they would be receiving the first from A123/Continental in December.
The other day, GM spokesperson Rob Peterson was quoted as saying the pack would not arrive until 2008.
I was able to verify that fact with Mr. Peterson. His official statement to me:
There’s no concerns on our part. A123/Conti pack is expected to be delivered in early 2008.
It is interesting that the LG Chem/CPI camp has a very large battery maker paired with a small pack company, whereas the A123/Continental camp has a small battery-maker (relative) paired with a large component manufacturer.
Does this mean the A123 pack is delayed, or was the pack never intended for December? Your guess is as good as mine.
