    A123 Systems (AONE) +16.3% premarket after introducing a "breakthrough" lithium ion battery that optimizes performance in extreme temperatures. The nanophosphate EXT cells will be produced next year, and the technology will reduce the need for systems in electric cars to maintain a consistent battery temperature, helping solve a major cost issue.

    A123 Systems (AONE) -16.7% after filing an 8-K in which it claims its history of losses and cash burn "raise substantial doubt on the Company's ability to continue as a going concern." It's added management is trying to raise cash and is "evaluating other strategic alternatives," and is "in discussions with strategic partners for substantial investments." A123 had $113M in cash and equivalents as of March 31, down from $187M three months earlier.

    The White House's $1B+ attempt to build an industry of companies that make batteries for electric vehicles is going flat. Firms have few clients and operate well below capacity, and their futures are in doubt. A major problem is that the government gave grants that were linked to production timetables which weren't tied to demand.

    A123 Systems (AONE) is soaring 16.1%. With no major company news, the surge could be due to Fisker Automotive's disclosure that its hybrid electric-gasoline luxury Karma sedans generated revenue of over $100M in the first four months of the year. A123 supplies the battery packs for the Karma vehicles.

    A123 Systems (AONE +12%), crushed over the last 12 months due to a litany of problems (I, II, III), is rallying post-earnings. Though A123's numbers badly missed estimates and the company reported cash burn of $73M, it also said it has fixed the battery defect that led to a massive recall, and that a federal grant with $120M in remaining proceeds has been extended by 2 years. A123 slashed its 2012 guidance last Friday.

    The market for electric vehicles appears to be gaining steam in 2012, according to a tally of the most recent round of sales numbers. In Q1, domestic sales of hybrids, plug-in hybrids, and EVs increased 44% Y/Y to 113,457. The pickup in buying activity stands in contrast to an industry mired in a slump last year amid a safety probe on Chevrolet Volts, supply issues, and limited model options.
