LG Electronics to be Key Supplier for GM Bolt

GM says Chevy Bolt electric range could be over 200 miles.

WARREN, Mich. (AP) – General Motors’ entry into the long-range electric vehicle market should be able to go more than 200 miles on a single charge, company officials said Tuesday. The company also plans to market the Chevrolet Bolt, a small hatchback car due out late next year, as a crossover SUV as it tries to take advantage of the global thirst for SUVs. The comments were made at an event at GM’s technical center north of Detroit announcing joint development efforts with LG Electronics of Korea to design the Bolt’s electric motor, heating and air conditioning system, infotainment screen and other components.

The Detroit automaker today announced a strategic partnership with LG, which will supply many of the systems around the car’s electric drive system. LG subsidiaries such as LG Electronics and LG Chem worked closely with GM to develop the prototype systems in the Bolt EV concept. “Being selected as GM’s EV technology partner positions LG as a key player in next-generation vehicular technologies,” said Woo-jong Lee, president and CEO of the LG Electronics Vehicle Components Co, said in a released statement. “The opportunity to work with GM on such game-changing technology is indicative of exactly the type of contributions that traditional tech companies can make in the automotive space.” This sort of partnership makes sense for General Motors and LG. Pam Fletcher, GM’s executive chief engineer for electric vehicles, said the company will try to get the Bolt classified as an SUV because it has the “spaciousness and utility” of a larger vehicle.
