News came out this week that GM would be partnering extensively with LG to produce Chevrolets Bolt EV.
GM's executive VP of product development, Mark Reuss noted that this markets a significant shift away from the traditionally contentious automaker-supplier relationship. Something he says is essential to EV production. “The Bolt EV will be the result of an entirely different PEM/supplier relationship.”
And what a significant shift it is, LG is expected to supply not just the battery, but also the PEEM (power electronics and electric machine), the HVAC electronic climate control compressor, telematics for OnStar and both displays for the cluster and infotainment unit.
However do keep in mind that the electric motors LG is providing are built from GM provided designs and specs. LG already is already a significant player on the display side of the equation.
Unfortunately GM will not be discussing the technical details of the Bolt until it has been revealed in production form.
