No other automaker besides Tesla has jumped in to announce a 200 mile BEV. Ford and Chrysler had been non-committal, Toyota and Honda are going hydrogen, and the Europeans believe more on PHEVs, though BMW and Audi may have "concepts" for the future. Even the current BEV market leader, Nissan, hasn't announced anything about its next-generation LEAF or if it will incorporate a 200 mile battery.
Over the next few days, we will bring you every bit of information that you could want to know about the 2016 Chevrolet Camaro, but today, we bring you a look at the car at the debut along with the
The new body design of the 2016 Chevy Volt has had mixed reviews with some people claiming on social media that they’ll get a 2015 before they’re gone because they don’t like the new body style. Others, especially those that have seen the new Volt in person seem to like the design very much. And so the debate begins.
Here’s what’s known about configuring the new Volt:
There are two trim levels, the LT and the higher-end “LTZ” (also known as “Premier”). There is a definite demarcation between trim levels, with the entry-level LT missing out on some very nice features.
According to the folks at GMAuthority, General Motors has filed trademark applications for both “Camaro Krypton” and “Krypton” for the use with motor land vehicles (that is the formal terminology u
Earlier today we published one EV owner's opinion refuting this line of thought, saying comparing the LEAF to a battery-powered Versa is not giving the LEAF designers much credit. In this opinion piece, an EV owner and enthusiast Ivan Jue makes a brief comparison between Nissan LEAF and Versa as well as Chevy Volt and Cruze, writing one cannot judge the book by its cover. Here is what Jue says.
Two days ago, on May 10, I saw this picture of a crashed Chevy Volt on Chevrolet Volt's official Facbook public page, shared by Karl Blinkinsop.
He shared his picture and wrote this comment. "The Chevy Volt is no match for the Mack truck that rear ended me Wednesday during standstill traffic on the interstate but I do think its cleaver designed saved my life. RIP my 2012 Chevy Volt, can't wait to get a new one."
Then Karl wrote that he is "OK, just bruised ribs, no one else was in the Volt."
The National Corvette Museum in Bowling Green, Kentucky has given away 10 new Chevrolet Corvettes during the 2015 calendar year and this Thursday, the museum will give away a 2015 Chevrolet Corvett
The 2016 Chevrolet Camaro will make its grand debut this Saturday at a now-closed event on Detroit’s Belle Isle, but with just five days left before the big day – General Motors rolled out the fina
Before taking possession of my 2013 Chevy Volt, the least of my worries was the lifespan of the battery.
The Volt battery has an active liquid cooling system. Chevy Volt does not use the full capacity of the battery which is another reason the battery will easily outlast the warranty. The battery warranty is 8 years/100,000 miles.
Technically speaking, Chevy Volt is a PHEV as it uses both an electric motor and a gas AKA Internal Combustion Engine (ICE).
Ivan Jue from San Jose, CA comments, explaining why he prefers the Range Extender option.
A bit torn on this. Would love to go back to a BEV again. But having experienced battery degradation (20% in 2.5 years on our '11 Leaf), I can't go back to a pure BEV just yet.
From that point I was hooked on the whole Electric Vehicle concept, and was now all in. We leased our RAV 4 EV in February 2014 for my wife's 100 mile round trip commute to work. The original goal was to save money on "fuel" and to save her time with HOV lane access. In both instances the new experience has delivered. My wife's commute costs have gone from $18/day in gasoline to about $2 in electricity, and she saves roughly 40 minutes each way in the carpool lane. Win-win.
