Chevy Volt Switches to Gas - (Very) Instant Impression
Here's a very quick take on one of the most important aspects of the Volt. What happens when the car taps into the reserve gas tank? Autoline correspondent Craig Cole took it for a long-distance drive and was able to record the transition. The result? Well, you'll just have to see.
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.
Dandelion Rubber? - Autoline Daily 639
China's Ministry of Commerce is accusing the United States of dumping cars
in China. Ford is teaming up with The Ohio State University to figure out
how to use dandelions as a sustainable resource for rubber. Bob Stempel,
the former Chairman and CEO of General Motors, passed away last weekend.
All that and more, plus John shares his take on the Buick Regal turbo.
EPA's Hydraulic Hybrid - Autoline Daily 640
Toyota reported its net profit fell by 77 percent in its fourth quarter due
to the earthquake in Japan and the strong value of the yen. The first
hydrogen fueling station in the U.S. fed directly from an existing hydrogen
pipeline opened yesterday. Google is lobbying the state of Arizona for it
to become the first place in the world to allow autonomous cars to drive
legally on streets. All that and more, plus a look at the EPA's hydraulic
hybrid technology which could help cut the cost of making hybrid vehicles.

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

joined in studio by the Autoextremist, Peter De Lorenzo.

which significantly impacts performance off-the-line.
Bring on the SS! =)
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.
