The battery cooling technology prevents the Volt’s lithium-ion battery from overheating by enabling efficient heat transfer between the battery pack’s 200-plus cells, and this occurs as battery coolant circulates around individual plates located between the cells, Dana said.

Dana’s battery cell cooling technology is manufactured using a cost-effective, proprietary clean nickel-brazing process, which provides improved battery system durability.

Made of lightweight aluminum, the cooling plates offer improved energy efficiency and are easily recyclable, contributing to the overall environmental benefit of the Volt.

GM has said that the Volt’s battery is covered by an eight-year, 100,000-mile warranty.

Dana is a supplier of driveline products, power technologies, and genuine service parts for light and heavy manufacturers.
