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.
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.
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.
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 charging
cord. No external charging station is required.
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,
whose average commute trip is 33 miles (53 km). 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). 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. 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.
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. 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.

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
