Back at the start of March, General Motors unveiled the its Ultium modular battery system -- a system that it said would power future all-electric models from the brand, including the upcoming GMC Hummer EV and Cadillac Lyriq EV.

Today, it held a refresher press call to coincide with the start of groundwork at the new Ultium LLC battery manufacturing facility it's building in Lordstown, Ohio in collaboration with LG Chem.

Although GM's original battery day in March detailed some of the underlying technology behind the Ultium battery system, we learned a whole lot more today -- from its wireless battery management system through to its forward compatibility with future battery chemistries.

As far as we can tell, it's the first time in the automotive industry we've seen true forward compatibility proposed. And that excites us very much.
