    So he shows a picture of two boxes, and says the batteries are in the boxes??? Well, whoop-de-doo. Next thing is he'll have a picture of a sheet that he claims the Volt is under, but he can't take the sheet off because "the competition might steal it."

    Looks like a high school science project.

    Where is the drivable test mule on the road? Easter is coming and someone is going to get an egg on the face.

    Yolk is coming instead of Volt. :p

    Wow. I wonder if that shiny chrome plating helps in any way...more voltage, faster recharge, higher price tag.

    Yes.

    And those don't look like any of the A123 packs I've seen.

    Continental ? Hmmm, I thought GM's Lutz said 100.000 batteries coming out of Hitachi of Japan. Now Lutz is saying from Continental of Germany ?
    Next, what happened to the US battery manufacturer, the one closer to GM only parts supplier ?
