GM and LG reach an agreement over Bolt EV battery recall costs—before the battery replacement has even started. Hyundai is partnering with Shell for hydrogen stations. And in-house battery manufacturing is part of Rivian’s vision. This and more, here at Green Car Reports.
LG Electronics will pay GM $1.9 billion associated with the recall of about 140,000 Chevrolet Bolt EV and EUV models—and a battery defect that has required full module replacement on many of those models.
Based on IPO paperwork filed earlier this month, Rivian is considering in-house battery manufacturing; and it might also localize vehicle assembly for Europe on that continent, it suggested.
Hyundai is teaming up with Shell to expand hydrogen fueling infrastructure for passenger vehicles in California. As part of what it’s calling “Project Neptune,” Shell will help construct 48 new stations and update two, with the project starting this year. For now it points to the Nexo crossover, although the automaker has many other ideas fueled by hydrogen—including a sports car—potentially in the pipeline.
