    "US packs yes, US cells ... nope"

    It's important to distinguish here that "battery" means the overall battery PACK: The metal box with control electronics, cooling, and so forth that contains MODULES made up of a group of CELLS.
    The Volt pack will be produced in the U.S. The LG Chem cells, however, which comprise more than 50% of the cost of the battery, will still be produced in Korea.
    News coverage from this announcement has been remarkably muddy on this important fact.
