    The GM electric battery testing lab is bound to swell up soon, thanks to the company’s $8 million investment. The Global Battery Systems Lab is currently the largest battery testing factory for automobiles in US. A new structure will be built, increasing space from 30,000 square feet to 63,000 square feet. This testing unit will help increase the development of the electric vehicle sector. The facility will also be used to develop technology for use in long range vehicles.

    The 1,000 engineers who currently work in the facility will have more hands to work soon since the new facility will require more man-power too. GM is undeniably working towards having more of those clean and green vehicles on our streets soon.
