Chevy Volt Test Drive

Sirens of Chrome - Autoline After Hours 102
This week the AAH studio is transformed into a swinging boutique as we take a look back at the history of auto show models with author Margery Krevsky. Margery wrote the book "Sirens of Chrome," which details the transformation of models into knowledgeable product specialists. We'll be getting a look at some vintage outfits from the past 50 years, modeled by contemporary product specialists. These are the dresses that stood alongside cars such as John Lennon's Rolls-Royce, the Ford Sunliner and Pontiac Firebird. Per usual, we'll also be getting into the news of the week. John McElroy is joined in studio by the Autoextremist, Peter De Lorenzo.





End of the Line for Saab - Autoline Daily 641
Earlier this week GM announced it will be hiring 4,200 workers at its plants in the U.S., and now Bloomberg reports that Chrysler may add 3,000 more jobs, too. And in another indication the American economy is clawing its way back, the big-truck segment had its best sales month of the year in April. The saga at Saab is going from bad to worse. The Swedish automaker thought it had a deal with Chinese car company Hawtai, but the deal collapsed this morning. All that and more, plus John thinks it's time to raise the speed limit in a BIG way.





We Want a 150 MPH Speed Limit!
As long as we have traveled at great speed there have been those seeking to limit that speed. Highway speed limits have not increased in 50 years, while car technology and driver abilities have greatly improved in that time. John McElroy pleads his case as to why high speed on the highway is an achievable goal.

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

A Day in the Life of an Electric Car
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) In the very near future will we all be driving electric cars? That's a question that only 10 years ago seemed like a dream, but today with all electric cars like the 2012 Nissan Leaf, it doesn't seem so far fetched. Of course unlike, gasoline powered cars, electric cars can't be filled up at your local gas station in a few minutes. Once they run our of juice...you are well and truly stuck. This is called range anxiety and it can be all too real. We decide to find out just how real by spending a day in the life of the all new Nissan Leaf.





Chevy Volt Reviews | Real Customer Review of the Chevy Volt
http://www.peltierchevrolettyler.com Recent 2011 Chevy Volt purchaser John Cobb gives his Chevy Volt Review and comments about his new electric car. Besides the fuel economy of the Chevy Volt John enjoys the quietness of the vehicle and the room the Volt offers to carry things like bikes. John is an avid cyclist and inventor so he appreciates the design and technology in the Chevy Volt. His other car happens to be a Porsche 911 that is the complete opposite of his new Chevy Volt.





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.
