2012 Chevy Volt versus Nissan Leaf Mash-up Drag Race

( http://www.TFLcar.com ) The 2012 plug-in Chevrolet Volt and the new all electric Nissan Leaf are not what most people would consider performance cars. In fact they are designed to get people from point A to point B using the least amount of energy and burning the least amount of oil. If you think about it...in some ways they are the ultimate economy cars but that doesn't mean they can't be fun to drive. To determine which of these two new revolutionary cars is the better performance machine we put them to the test the good old fashioned way: with an electric car drag race. So which one is faster?

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.

( http://www.TFLcar.com ) The 2012 Infiniti FX50 S is a 390 horsepower all-wheel-drive luxury rocket on 21 inch wheels.

2012 Cadillac CTS versus Infiniti M56x All-Wheel-Drive Mashup Review
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) The 2012 Cadillac CTS Sport wagon and the Infiniti M56 both come with all-wheel-drive. The Cadillac's Borg Warner system "uses sophisticated controls and algorithms to augment vehicle handling and traction by optimally using grip at both the front and rear wheels," according to Cadillac. It can shift up to 100% of available torque to the front axle if needed. The 2012 Infiniti's M56x All-Wheel-Drive system is designed "specifically for a front engine/rear-wheel drive biased setup. 0 to 50 percent of the power can be sent to the front wheels for better control. The active brake limited slip differential can shift power side to side. The system uses an advanced torque split control strategy that automatically redistributes torque to the wheels (0:100 up to 50:50 front to rear) according to road and driving conditions." according to Infiniti. So which is better up Lick Skillet Road (America's steepest country road) when it's muddy, wet and slick? Watch the video to find out in this All-wheel-drive mashup review.





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

The Chevy Volt Controversy - Autoline This Week #1616
It won nearly every serious automotive award and had a huge carbon-free footprint of positive reviews from critics and consumers alike. So if that's the case, why is the Volt GM's slowest selling product? More than that, why does there seem to be such a negative charge to the car? People across the country who have never even seen a Volt let alone driven this engineering marvel have nothing good to say about it, confounding both auto analysts and company executives On Autoline This Week John McElroy and his panel look at the strange state of GM's engineering masterpiece the Volt. Joining John on the panel are Joe White of the Wall Street Journal, Manny Lopez from the Michigan Capitol Confidential and Gary Witzenburg an auto journalist and former engineer on GM's original electric project, the EV1.

The Chevy Volt - One Family's View of a Plug In Hybrid
This is a video of the new Chevy Volt. I think there is some misconception on who should own a Chevy Volt. We leased a Volt to be part family car and part work car. It is awesome that I am able to drive to and from work without using ANY gasoline. The Chevy Volt will take me anywhere from 32-38 miles without the use of any gas. After that it switches over to gas, but still gets excellent gasoline (33-40mpg). The biggest factor is your personal driving style - in some ways it is pretty fun to find new ways to Boost your mileage. In terms of features, the Volt is loaded with all of the options you would expect in a high-end car. It offers a great stereo, comfortable seats, and a control panel that would make the Star Trek jealous. I will admit, that at first it can be quite overwhelming - and it will take time to learn. A few other notes- - The acceleration is very solid. While the Volt will never be mistaken as a sports car it does have a performance that is comparable to most mid-sized sedans. I am impressed. - The battery in the Volt does take up a fair amount of room, but the Volt can still seat 4. The back seat does not offer much leg room, but it is comparable to most small cars. - Charging - it takes 8 hours on a 110/120 Volt wall outlet, but you can reduce the time by 50% by going to a 240Volt. - The Volt does not have a transmission, which does take some time to get used to. - Warranty - it is safe to say that you are covered for the first 8-10 years. After that - the cost of the batteries will have probably have dropped... but that is only a guess. Final Verdict - The Volt is certainly worth a test drive. While it is more expensive than the Prius - GM does offer some very attractive lease deals, and depending on your commute the Volt is much greener technology (in terms of gas usage). I also think it looks a lot better too!
