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 hybrid system.





Chevy Volt vs. Nissan LEAF
There's a lot of controversy comparing the Nissan LEAF to the Chevy Volt, but it all has to do with whether or not the Volt is truly an electric car, or whether it's a hybrid. But let's set their powertrains aside for the moment. John McElroy just got a chance to test drive both cars, back to back, and here's his impression of what the they're like.





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.





Plug-in Hybrids...Volt vs. Prius
This is a video discussing the most popular plug-in hybrids on the market.





2011 Ford Mad Max Concept
Ford Australia, in partnership with TopGear Australia magazine, has unveiled not one, but two spectacular new Mad Max Interceptors. The 21st century concepts have been designed by Ford's designers for TopGear Magazine Australia to help celebrate the revival of the Mad Max action movie genre. It is more than 30 years since Hollywood director, George Miller's original Mad Max movie - starring Mel Gibson and a jet black Ford XB coupe-based Interceptor - hit movie screens around the world. Ford Australia's Melbourne-based Asia, Pacific and Australia Design Director, Chris Svensson, jumped at the chance to design a new Interceptor and has since thrown the full weight of Ford Australia's Research Centre behind the project, with stunning results. "Our entire team was very excited to be involved in this after-hours project and they approached it with a great deal of enthusiasm - even those that were too young to remember the first Mad Max movie," Svensson said. "We had a special screening of the original movie so they could understand it." Led by chief designer passenger cars Asia, Pacific and Africa, Todd Willing, the team created several way-out concepts that pay homage to styling cues from the original XB Coupe Interceptor. Out of the concepts two have been chosen by the magazine to feature in the April issue of TopGear Australia magazine, on sale now, because they take body design, power sources and weaponry to a futuristic level. TopGear Australia magazine readers will be invited to vote on which design Ford should take to the next level. The winning car will be turned into a clay model, and then a scale version, which is expected to be revealed later this year. The two competing designs - by designers Nima Nourian and Simon Brook - are limitless in their imagination, technology and weaponry. Among the weaponry is an industrial-strength "taser" mounted to the bonnet to zap bad guys on bikes straight off the road. Other futuristic movie features include a titanium-lined body shell to interrupt police scanners and wheels with extendable spikes to shred enemy vehicles. Nourian said his design paid tribute to the 1970s Interceptor, but also drags the car into the future. "There are some great scenes in the first movie with high-speed chases and clashes with the bad guys, and I thought I'd take that one step further," he said. "So instead of having weapons and machine guns, we've got an industrial strength taser that'll zap cars dead and out of the way. Brook's car was equally threatening. "During high-speed pursuits, the wheel's inner spokes on my design would pop out and start ripping up other cars," Brook said. "They'd do some serious damage to other people's vehicles." Brook's design takes cues from the current FG Falcon but advances it further into Armageddon-land, while adding touches of the retro Interceptor as well. "I wanted to keep it clean and aerodynamic in its essence, but still brutal and tough."

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.

2009 Wildfire WF650-C Start Up, Engine, In Depth Tour, and Brief Drive
In this video I give a full in depth tour to a rather unique 3 wheel 4 passenger vehicle knows as the Wildfire WF650-C. Powered by a motorcycle 650cc engine and a motorcycle chassis. I take viewers through the interior and exterior, start it up and see how it sounds under acceleration. I also show a bunch of the various features of the vehicle. This one was pretty trashed overall but a nice example of what the wildfire is all about and giving a better overall appreciation for the vehicle.





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.
