GM and LG to Design Electric Vehicles Together

Our changing technology, and our new emphasis on electrifying transportation, opens many doors to new, innovative partnerships.  Here's a great example:  GM and LG coming together to design electric cars.  A new, unique collaborative that would never have happened without our move towards sustainability.

Great reading.  Here's the link: http://www.environmentalleader.com/2011/08/26/gm-and-lg-to-design-electric-vehicles-together/.

"Part of the story:  GM and electronics manufacturer LG are to design and engineer electric vehicles together.
The automaker say that the agreement will help it expand the variety of EVs it makes, by using LG’s proven expertise in batteries and other systems. For LG, the arrangement represents a widening of its portfolio as an automotive solution provider, the electronics manufacturer says.
LG already supplies batteries for the Chevrolet Volt (pictured) and Opel Ampera extended-range electric vehicles.
Earlier this week, Ford and Toyota signed a memorandum of understanding aimed at developing advanced hybrid systems for light trucks and SUVs."
New investments, new jobs if we change, evolve and buy these new, innovative products.
To those of you on the East Coast of the US, stay safe.   Our prayers are with you.
