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.
Cars.com's Chevy Volt at 18,000 Miles
It's now been more than a year and 18,000 miles since we bought our 2011
Chevrolet Volt. After having the car for so long, we'd like to share some
of our lasting likes and dislikes about the car to give you an
all-encompassing view of our time with the plug-in hybrid. Overall, we're
pretty satisfied with the Volt, and despite its quirky cabin configuration
and powertrain, this is a real car that can accommodate everyday use,
according to Cars.com Executive Editor Joe Wiesenfelder.
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
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
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
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

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? Watch the video to

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.
2012 Chevy Volt vs Toyota Camry Hybrid Mashup Review & 0-60 MPH Drive
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) The 2012 Chevrolet Volt and the 2012 Toyota Camry
Hybrid represent two family cars that have a similar yet completely
different way of saving fuel. The Volt is both an electric car and a
plug-in hybrid in that it can run on both electricity (about 40 miles) and
gas. The Camry is a more traditional hybrid in that cannot go a very long
distance on just electricity but it use its electric motor in conjunction
with the gas engine to go further on a gallon of gas. So which is the
better family car? Check out this mashup review to find out.

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
