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.

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.





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.

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!

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 - 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
