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 correspondent Craig Cole took it for a long-distance drive and was able to record the transition. The result? Well, you'll just have to see.

How It Feels Going From A Chevy Volt To A Tesla Model S
For the past week, I've been cruising around in a Chevy Volt. But for one day, I got the privilege of driving a Tesla Model S. (And not just any Tesla Model S either. I got to drive the more powerful, higher end Tesla Model S P 85, which starts at $87,070 after a $7,500 federal tax credit.) While the Chevy Volt (base price of $26,685 with a tax credit) and Tesla Model S aren't exactly in the same class, I really liked the styling and performance of the Volt. Not to mention Chevy's offering is a plug-in hybrid — meaning it can run on either electricity or gas. So, what does an extra $60,000 get you in the Tesla Model S that you can't get in the Chevy Volt?

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.
