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,

2013 Chevrolet Volt Range Extending EV / Plug In Hybrid Review

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

GM has been hyping the Chevrolet Volt for years and now Autoline has
finally had a chance to drive the company's extended-range EV. Is it a
game changer like GM says it is or does it fall short of the hype? Click
