Battery Factory for Lithium Car Batteries

Treehugger has an interesting article about advances in manufacturing electric cars...
Johnson Controls and Saft are opening a factory to produce advanced lithium-ion batteries for cars in a sign that electric and nextgeneration hybrid vehicles are reaching an industrial tipping point.
This is interestint for several reasons, notably the exlusive manufacturing of batteries for cars on a large scale, but also the manufacture of Lithium batteries with performance beyond that of traditional metal hydride batteries.
Lithium-ion battery packs, which are about half the size and weight of nickel-metal hydride batteries, will power the next generation of hybrid, electric and plug-in hybrid vehicles.
