Electric vehicles are assuming for the automotive industry and the energy industry a revolution. Besides having to adapt our way of driving to this type of energy companies also will have to adapt. General Motors is one of the industrial groups that more is committed to electrify its range, and as proof of this we have the next Chevrolet Bolt and Opel Ampera-e.
These models will be more soon that afternoon to the market and General Motors has deposited in them many hopes. Not in vain, they will make us forget their little successful predecessors. Without, however, as we have learned, Chevrolet and consequent Opel, there may be problems with the official battery supplier that assemble their cars. If this were true, his models could result in delays when making deliveries to customers.
VP, GM battery supplier, it would have to stop their production lines and now could not give service to the marks of the General. This situation would be timely, and once pass the bottleneck which is undergoing production deliveries of batteries would be carried out with total normality.
LG Chem, the subsidiary that manufactures these batteries directly to VP he would be working to the maximum of its productive capacity to have list more than 30,000 thousand battery would need to start Assembly of the Chevrolet Bolt and Opel Ampera-e.
We must remember that these batteries consist of 288 lithium-ion cells and because of this have a weight of only 435 kilograms. Also, are equipped of a system of conditioning thermal active so the temperature inside the core of the battery is stable. In addition, and although it will be based on the market where it is sold, the brand will provide customer a 8 years or 160,000 km warranty.
