2011 Chevrolet Volt Video Review
http://drivencarreviews.com/ Unless you've been isolated in a yurt
distilling organic fuel for your bio-diesel hybrid, it's been tough to miss
the hype of the Chevrolet Volt. The extended range electric vehicle is now
available in select markets. Tom Voelk takes a look to see if it's worth
getting amped up over.
Jessica Drives The Chevy Volt (With Commentary By Matt)
Me and my friend Jessica decided to go to the 2011 NC Auto Expo here in
Raleigh at the state fairgrounds and we participated in the "GM: Experience
The Drive" event, where we both took a spin behind the wheel of the new
range extended electric vehicle by General Motors, the 2011 Chevrolet Volt.
It was quite an experience, and towards the end of the test drive you
start to notice that being in an electric vehicle starts to go to our heads
(mine in particular). Enjoy the video!

the new Chevy Volt.
My week with the Volt was a real eye opener. I can now see the attraction
to the super quiet drive system and infinite MPG that the Volt can provide.
The Volt is developmentally, still in its infancy, but provides many
answers. This car has a great future. - Mike Herzing
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.

Join us as we take an in-depth look at General Motors' first plug-in hybrid
which they prefer to call an EV with a range extender. We talk
infotainment, drivetrain, batteries, charging, hop in the trunk and take it
on the road.
The Chevrolet Volt may be the most maligned and least understood car on the
market. After a week of strange questions and bipolar reactions to GM's
plug-in hybrid, I came to a conclusion. GM's marketing of the Volt stinks.
By calling the Volt an "Electric Vehicle (EV) with a range extender," a
huge segment of the population can't get past "Electric" and immediately
cross the Volt off their list. There is also [strangely] a segment of the
population that says, "that's great but I want a hybrid." Guess what? The
Volt is a hybrid.
Before we dive into the Volt, it's important to know how hybrid systems
work. GM's Belt-Alternator-Starter, Mercedes' S400 Hybrid and Honda's IMA
hybrids are all systems where the engine is always connected and even if
the car is capable of "EV" mode, the engine is spinning. Porsche, VW,
Infiniti and others use a pancake motor and clutch setup to disconnect the
engine from the motor and transmission allowing a "pure EV" mode. Honda's
new Accord has a 2-mode setup where the motor drives the wheels via a fixed
ratio gearset, the engine drives a motor and above 45MPH a clutch engages,
linking the engine and motor together at a ratio of roughly 1:1. Ford,
Toyota and the Volt use a planetary gearset "power splitting" device. Yes,
the Volt uses a hybrid system that although not identical, is thematically
similar to Ford & Toyota's hybrid system.
Say what? I thought GM said it was a serial hybrid? Yes, GM did at some
point say that and I think that has caused more confusion than anything
else about the Volt. The bankrupt Fisker Karma is only a serial hybrid. The
engine drives a generator, the generator powers the battery and the motor
to move the car forward. At no point can the engine provide any motive
power to the wheels except via the electrical connection.
The Volt's innovation is that it can operate like a Fisker Karma or like a
Prius. It is therefore both a serial and a parallel hybrid. To do this, GM
alters the power split device power flow VS the Ford/Toyota design. Then
they add a clutch allowing the gasoline engine to be mechanically isolated
from the wheels. And finally they add software with a whole new take on a
