2016 Chevrolet Bolt EV - Official Review
The real goal for EVs is thus to keep the positives from cars, like increased mobility for people who would otherwise not have much, the ability to work, see friends and family, etc, and lose the negatives, like the dependency on fossil fuels, the air pollution and global warming. GM has announced that the production version of the Bolt (which probably won't look exactly like the concept version pictured above) will begin production in October 2016 in a factory north of Detroit. GM's production target for the Bolt is relatively modest, at about 25,000-30,000 cars a year, but if it's a success that could increase fast. The Bolt is expected to go on sale in early 2017 for about $30,000 after incentives, and will have a range between charges of "more than 200 miles."

Chevy Volt vs. Nissan LEAF
There's a lot of controversy comparing the Nissan LEAF to the Chevy Volt, but it all has to do with whether or not the Volt is truly an electric car, or whether it's a hybrid. But let's set their powertrains aside for the moment. John McElroy just got a chance to test drive both cars, back to back, and here's his impression of what the they're like.

Chevy Volt Unplugged..... My test drive in NYC
The Chevrolet Volt is a electric extended range vehicle being produced by the Chevrolet division of General Motors and will be launched in November 2010 as a 2011 model. Its propulsion system is based on GM's new Voltec (formerly known as E-Flex) electric automobile platform, which differs significantly from GM's earlier BAS Hybrid and Two-Mode Hybrid systems. The Volt is capable of traveling between 25 to 50 miles (40 to 80 km) solely powered by the electrical energy stored in its on-board battery pack.[4][5] The car's 16 kW·h (10.4 kW·h usable) lithium-ion battery battery pack can be fully charged by plugging the car into a 120-240VAC residential electrical outlet using the provided SAE J1772-compliant[6][7] charging cord. No external charging station is required.[8] With fully charged batteries and under normal driving and climate conditions, the Volt has an expected all-electric range of 40 miles (64 km), a distance longer than the daily commute for 75% of Americans,[9] whose average commute trip is 33 miles (53 km).[10] After the battery is depleted, a small 4-cylinder internal combustion engine using premium gasoline creates electricity on-board using a 55 kW (74 hp) generator to extend the Volt's range up to an additional 310 miles (499 km).[4] The electrical power from the generator is sent primarily to the electric motor, with the excess going to the batteries, depending on the state of charge (SoC) of the battery pack and the power demanded at the wheels. The distribution is controlled by the electronic control unit (ECU) of the vehicle.[11][12] At speeds between 30 to 70 miles per hour (48 to 110 km/h) and if the battery is depleted, the internal combustion engine may engage (via a clutch) to assist the traction motor to drive the output, improving performance and Boosting high-speed efficiency by 10 to 15 percent.[4][13][14][15][16] The Volt's retail price will start at US$41,000 (including destination charges) before any factory incentives, tax deductions, or other subsidies. The Volt is currently eligible for a US$7,500 U.S. federal tax credit and other benefits available in some locations. The Volt will also be available through a lease program with a monthly payment of US$350 for 36 months, with US$2,500 due at lease signing, and with an option to buy at the end of the lease.[17][18] The Volt will be initially sold in seven regions: California, Washington DC, Michigan, New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, and Austin, Texas. Nationwide availability in the U.S. and Canada is scheduled to begin in one year to 18 months after the initial launch.[19][20][21]

2012 Chevrolet Volt Start Up, Engine, Test Drive, and In Depth Review
In this video I give a full in depth tour of Chevrolet's newest extended range electric vehicle, the Chevrolet Volt. Introduced as a 2011 model in the northern states, the 2012 has a few minor quality and feature improvements. I take viewers on a close look through the interior and exterior of this car while showing details, over viewing of features, and noting unique styling cues to the vehicle itself. I also show the engine and the details of it, start it up and see how it sounds under acceleration. Take it on a thorough test drive through the city during the day as well as night time. A thorough tour/review of this car designed to give others a greater overall appreciation of the vehicle. Thanks a lot to Hendrick Chevrolet Cadillac in Monroe, NC for allowing me to make this video!

Chevy Volt - 9 Months and 9000 miles with this amazing GM hybrid electric car [Review]
http://www.redferret.net/?p=34759 .The Chevy Volt is charging ahead in the electrifying battle to become the #1 plug in hybrid. OK, so how cheesy an opening is that, but the reality is that for the first time since the horse drawn carriage, gasoline is slowly becoming more of an optional part of the personal transportation equation. At least that's the way it seems right now...gas powered skateboards may change the balance once again if they get popular. But I digress. The Volt isn't the first electric car, nor is it the sportiest (hello Fisker Karma), or the one with furthest range (nice to meet you Tesla Model S), the cheapest, the largest, the shiniest, and it can't make balloon animals. However...it is definitely a landmark vehicle. The Chevy Volt is simply the most practical plug in hybrid ever created, and I am not surprised that it won the European Car of the Year at the Geneva Motor Show this summer (http://www.wired.com/autopia/2012/03/volt-ampera-europe-car-year/). It combines a 35-40 mile electric range with a surprisingly agile internal combustion engine (aka "gas engine"). Of course, electric driving range is just one feature, even a golf cart can stagger a few miles on an electric charge. The Volt however manages to combine plug-in technology and practicality in a fun-to-drive package, and the result is a vehicle which achieves a phenomenal gas mileage while at the same time offering conventional sedan style comfort and style. And what other car comes with not just one, but two smartphone apps to keep you informed and in touch with your vehicle? Most importantly, you don't need to worry about running out of battery charge half way to your destination, as with other electric vehicles. We definitely haven't seen the last of this kind of imaginative and innovative technology. Check out my video review below which bursts quite a number of myth balloons about this brave engineering gamble from General Motors. More at www.redferret.net





Chevy Volt Powertrain Deep Dive | Part 3

Find out how it all works in this incredibly complex piece of engineering from a presentation given by Chevy's Chief Engineer for global Voltec and Plug-in Hybrid Vehicles, Pamela Fletcher, during the Volt's national media launch on October 18, 2010.





Volt Handling in Snow
Volt traction in the snow is extremely impressive. When driving, it almost feels like there's no snow on the ground. I tried to capture that fact in this short video. This isn't meant to show a major snow storm, but the fact that from what I've seen, the Volt handles better than in these particular conditions than other cars and SUV's I've driven.
