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
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 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

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
