Daimler, GM Juice Up Hybrid Plans

Daimler AG said its Mercedes-Benz unit is aiming to introduce a hybrid sedan that uses lithium ion batteries in 2009, signaling that auto makers are confident they will be able to commercialize a technology needed for electric vehicles. Next week General Motors Corp. is expected to claim an advance of its own at the Geneva auto show when it announces it plans to use lithium ion batteries to upgrade the hybrid powertrains it offers in vehicles such as its Chevrolet Malibu and Saturn Aura models, according to people familiar with the company's plans. It is unclear when the system will be available and at what price.
