I see this LG battery implication a lot, in EV media, and this forum. Just like Nissan
does not have to buy steel from just US steel to make body panels, they do not need
to buy cells from LG Chem to have LG batteries. They can buy the components,
namely the electrodes, and the separator from LG, or they can buy the IP from LG Chem,
and have NEC make the components. When Nissan was testing their 60kwh pack,
they had to have made some kind of deal with LG Chem, so they were already
thinking of how they would do the manufacture.
