Vauxhall Ampera (Chevrolet Volt) hatchback review - CarBuyer
Vauxhall Ampera 2014 review: http://bit.ly/1cTmDNM Subscribe to the Carbuyer YouTube channel: http://bit.ly/17k4fct Subscribe to Auto Express: http://subscribe.autoexpress.co.uk/cb Competition in the eco car segment is hotting up, and the Vauxhall Ampera is a real contender. Its CO2 emissions are lower than any efficient diesel or hybrid currently on the market. That means there's no road tax to pay, and it's exempt from the London Congestion Charge, too. The Ampera can be plugged into the mains to charge up the batteries (a process which takes around four hours) and can run on electricity alone for around 50 miles, so you shouldn't need a drop of petrol for most journeys. And even when you do need to travel a bit further, economy is so good that you will rarely have to visit a petrol station. But for all of its green credentials, the Ampera offers strong performance. It's fast, features sporty looks and an attractive high-spec interior. All this comes at a price though, as the Ampera is more expensive than its hybrid and all-electric competitors. And if you think it looks familiar, that's because it's the same car underneath as the Chevrolet Volt.

2014 BMW i8 Review
Subscribe : http://www.youtube.com/user/Auto1News?sub_confirmation=1 What's New for 2014 The 2014 BMW i8 is an all-new model. Introduction Based on the BMW Vision EfficientDynamics concept car shown a few years ago, the 2014 BMW i8 represents the German automaker's vision of a high-performance plug-in hybrid. If this is what the future looks like, sign us up. Zero to 62 mph in 4.4 seconds? A full charge in three hours from a regular garage outlet? Approximately 95 mpg? Yes, please. For the i8, BMW chops its classic 3.0-liter inline six-cylinder engine formula in half. The i8 uses a turbocharged 1.5-liter inline three-cylinder paired with an electric motor and lithium-ion battery pack. The three-cylinder drives the rear wheels through a six-speed automatic transmission, while the electric motor powers the front wheels through a two-speed automatic. The engine and electric motor combine for 362 horsepower, 420 pound-feet of torque and all-wheel-drive performance, all integrated into a chassis that is 10 pounds lighter and 1.5 inches longer than the 3 Series. The i8 also delivers stellar handling thanks to 50/50 weight distribution and a low, centrally mounted battery pack, although standard 20-inch wheels seem like a suspect choice for maximizing corner-to-corner performance. BMW says the i8 can also travel 22 miles and reach a top speed of 75 mph on electrons alone. Uncorked with the gasoline engine in the lead, it will reach a top speed of 155 mph. Sounds like a pretty good future to us. Lightweight construction helps bring lofty performance within reach, notably an aluminum chassis, chemically hardened glass (similar to that used in smartphones) and extensive use of carbon-fiber-reinforced panels within the 2+2 passenger cabin. Those plus-2 rear seats are small, however, smaller than even a Porsche 911's, and are best considered auxiliary luggage space. Even settling into the front seats requires some practice given its unique scissor-lift-style doors. We drove a recent i8 prototype and found the i8's easy thrust in all-electric mode a close match for the Tesla Model S. In its Sport mode (there are also Comfort and Eco Pro settings), the i8 further awakens, feeling light, agile and averse to body roll. The hybrid never quite overwhelms with acceleration, but it also never feels winded, the electric motor's torque nicely covering for the small turbo as the latter winds up to deliver its power contribution. Whatever the i8 lacks in competitive performance, it won't lack for style. Its low-slung profile is punctuated by standard U-shaped LED headlights. You can even order the i8 with laser headlights where regulations allow (sorry, U.S. shoppers). Inside, a multitiered and layered cockpit design uses recycled materials and naturally treated leather for upholstery and panel surfaces Like the smaller i3 electric car, the i8 will offer three trim levels -- Mega, Giga and Tera -- all with varying degrees of sport and luxury appointments. The 2014 BMW i8 arrives in the spring and starts around $136,000. That's well above its most obvious target, the Tesla Model S, and that kind of money also buys a lot of Porsche 911. Performance aficionados won't likely be swayed and may even look across the BMW lineup to the "M" cars. But for the hybrid buyer seeking power, performance and efficiency through a lower profile, the 2014 BMW i8 presents a unique choice. Check back for more information on the 2014 BMW i8, including specs, driving impressions and buying advice as it becomes available.





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

(ENG) BMW i3 - First Drive, Test Drive and Review
BMW is launching its long-awaited first mass-produced electric model: the i3. It is the first car from a new series, designed to appeal to a new target group. The i3 has a theoretical range of around 150-160 kilometers, but in real life 120-130 seems more manageable. The car can also be equipped with an optional petrol range extender. However unlike most other electric cars, BMW i3 is fast and relatively fun to drive on European roads. It might not be the Isetta everyone thought it would be, but this could be the future of mobility. On 17 April BMW i3 received two awards: - 2014 World Car Design of the Year - 2014 World Green Car as part of the World Car of the Year (WCOTY) programme.

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.

It's amazingly efficient, it completely eliminates range anxiety, and it's comfortable and relaxing to drive. It's far from cheap to buy, and there's huge uncertainty over its residual values.

2014 Chevy Volt Test Drive & Plug-In Hybrid Car Video Review
http://www.autobytel.com/chevrolet/volt/2014/?id=32972 For commuters that average less than 40 miles, the Chevrolet Volt is the perfect car as you have just enough juice to run on electricity alone. And for the 2014 model year, Chevy has knocked $5k off the sticker price. The Volt now costs $34,185 before and Federal or State Tax Credits. The Volt was seen for the first time back in 2007 at the Detroit Auto Show and today this plug-in hybrid is the best-selling car in the segment. The 2014 Chevy Volt has slightly better fuel economy and a slightly better range when compared to the previous year. On the outside, the Volt's styling is very distinctive and unique. Out back the taillights are stamped to look like a circuit board. The front fascia is very contemporary but with a definite Chevrolet flair. The overall look fits the Volt well and the shape is very aerodynamic with a drag coefficient of 0.281. Under the hood there is no Chevy 350, instead the Volt is powered by a Voltec Electric Drive unit that produces 149 horsepower and 273 lb-ft. of torque. After the 40 miles of electric range is used, the batteries are then recharged via a 1.4 liter engine that acts a s range extender. The car tested here has been optioned out to the max and includes cool stuff like: a leather wrapped steering wheel, heated leather seats, and MyLink Touch Screen infotainment system. That same system allows you to monitor all of the car's efficiency dynamics. The 2014 Chevrolet Volt is a 4-passenger hatchback that is surprisingly comfortable. With a full tank of gas you will be able to go 385 miles and on EV mode alone the range is 38 miles. Even though the Volt is a Plug-In hybrid car, it still drives just like a normal gasoline powered car. Overall the car is comfortable, spacious, and drives very well. Most commuters should really consider a plug-in hybrid like the Chevy Volt.
