$$$ to replace the Volt battery pack?

After owning a GM volt (let's say for 5 years) I am assuming it would be time to replace the lithium ion batteries. AND HOW MUCH WILL THIS COST?

In fact, now they are saying that they want to provide a ten year 150,000 mile warranty on the battery pack.

I don't see that anywhere. Where did they say that? One thing I don't like about Lyle's reporting style is he uses too many phrases like "suggests" and "points to" and in this case "indicating". GM never indicated they are going to provide a 10 year / 150,000 mile warranty on the battery pack. Here's the exact quote:

But one of the important challenges remaining is proving ten-year, 150,000-mile life when we're developing the battery over a three-year timeframe.
What they are building a car for, and what they plan to back it up with are two different things. Many auto makers build cars to last 15 years and 200,000 miles, but they only back it up with a 3 year, 36,000 mile warranty.
