A new lithium-ion battery from A123 Systems could help electric cars and hybrids come to dominate the roads.

Crash Safety result and more <--- LINK

Most of it is a refresh for those who already know about A123, but the bit that was interesting for me was that side pics about crash test, as far as I know there was no mention of those test results before



Side Impact: A battery designed by A123 Systems for GM’s Volt electric vehicle can survive a crushing safety test. The high-velocity impact could have caused other lithium-ion batteries to overheat and catch fire.
