CHEVY VOLT REVIEW - Jeff Bolton Dallas Test Drive - gmtruckclub
In July 2010, the guys from GM drove a Chevy Volt from Austin to New York, just to prove it could be done in an electric car. On they way, they stopped in Dallas for a quick test drive with Steve from the GM Truck Club website and Jeff Bolton from 570 KLIF.

FOR PRICING & SPECS ON THIS CAR VISIT:
For a car that's still not for available for sale, it feels like we've been
hearing about the Chevrolet Volt for forever. Years worth of rumors, spy
photos and technical details piqued our interest in Chevrolet's new
electric car. The 2011 Chevy Volt won't go on sale until late 2010 but
Kelley Blue Book's Jack Nerad and James Bell recently got a sneak peak of
the Volt driving experience. In this video James and Jack drive the
Chevrolet Volt, learn more about what to expect from the production model

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

I drive the Chevy Volt
Test driving the Chevy Volt in Vancouver. Three Chevy Volts are in
Vancouver for the 2010 Winter Olympics. As a member of the Vancover
Electric Vehicle Association I got to drive one. It's peppy. Lots of
smarts, too. But costs too much @ the predicted $40K or more. Otherwise,

performance packs. These cars have been going at it for longer than some of
you watching have been alive, and they've never been better. To find out
which is best, we'll run them through the full gamut of MT testing, a drive
on the road, and hot laps with Randy Pobst. Find out which one wins this
classic American rivalry!
