LG Chem to deliver complete battery pack for Chrysler Pacifica minivan PHEV

LG Chem Lithium Ion Cells

Korean battery maker LG Chem will supply the 16 kWh Li-ion battery pack system and controls for the 2017 Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid minivan.

LG Chem Power CEO Denise Gray recently noted that LG Chem’s cells, modules and batteries are currently powering some 490,000 vehicles, spanning all levels of electrification from micro-hybrids to BEVs. However, the agreement with Chrysler marks the first time LG Chem will engineer and manufacture a complete battery pack for a US-produced PHEV.

The Pacifica Hybrid was introduced at the recent North American International Auto Show in Detroit, and is scheduled for a late 2016 launch. It will be the first mass-produced hybrid minivan in North America. LG Chem will manufacture the cells and packs at its Holland, Michigan facility.

“Our experience with entire battery packs, including cell design and manufacturing capability, as well as our expertise in vehicle integration, makes us the ideal battery supplier for the Pacifica Hybrid,” said Denise Gray. “Our technical strengths, engineering and manufacturing expertise position us as a leading battery and control system provider for electric vehicles today and in the future.”
