2013 Chevrolet Volt Range Extending EV / Plug In Hybrid Review
Check out my other videos! http://vid.io/xqoB Who is Alex? Find out here! http://vid.io/xqoF 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 hybrid system.

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.
