GE Ups Investment Stake in A123 Lithium Batteries
NISKAYUNA — Electric cars aren't new to General Electric Co. The battery-powered vehicle on display outside GE Global Research Center in Niskayuna this week dates from 1914.
It was once owned by Charles Steinmetz, the GE scientist who launched the research laboratory.
More than nine decades later, GE scientists continue to work on the battery technology that could revive not only the electric car, but a variety of hybrid vehicles, from massive earth movers used in mining operations to railroad locomotives and city buses.
