Synopsis

What will it take to break America's addiction to oil? There are a variety of options on the table, but many believe the "Holy Grail" under the hood will be Lithium-Ion Batteries. This week Autoline Detroit goes on-the-road with its first-ever "live" audience to look at where this industry is right now as far as research, development and eventual delivery of Lithium-Ion Batteries.

Joining John McElroy at NEXTENERGY, Inc. -- a non-profit technology incubator in Detroit -- are experts and executives involved in this multi-billion dollar power-replacement gamble.
