GM to Open Michigan Battery Pack Plant Tomorrow

Tomorrow morning, General Motors will take a significant step in furthering the country's EV industry.  It will start operations at the nation's first battery pack plant run by a U.S. automaker.  The plant in Brownstown Township, MI will assemble the battery packs for the Chevy Volt.

Interesting that the US doesn't have the technological abiity to design and manufacture its own batteries, instead has to import Korean know-how.

I suppose this is future for the US.
