Layoffs at another plant Obama said was a “Success”! Celgard a maker of electric vehicle batteries but this should be no surprise to anyone how many electric vehicle batteries company have had layoffs and closer in the past 3 yrs?
Celgard like other electric vehicle batteries company also got a large grant of 49 million dollars of taxpayers money to create 300 jobs,Celgard did create the jobs it promised but now has to layoff 40 of that 300. The reason for the layoffs not enough demand for the batteries and why is this simple there is no demand for electric vehicles. Right now electric vehicle only have one class of buyer and that is the rich the price tag for most if not all-electric vehicles is far more them most middle class family’s can afford and for the poor it just not going to happen .will there be more electric vehicle batteries company layoffs and plant closing I think so , but time will tell
(Edit) as one of our reader pointed out Celgard makes battery separators not the batteries themselves
