Why GM Should be Applauded for The Chevrolet Bolt and What Should It Do for Success

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.

On ordering a 2016 Chevrolet Volt

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.

Neither Chevy Volt Is a Modified Cruze, nor LEAF a Modified Versa

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.

Chevy Volt Owner Only Gets Minor Bruises After Being Hit By a Truck

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."

How Buying EVs Leads to Solar, and Charging My Volt In Real Time

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.

Tesla Model X Will Begin Mass Appeal of EVs

By the time back-to-school ads for Staples are running in your local newspaper, Tesla will be preparing the launch of its highly anticipated Model X fully battery electric SUV (technically, it's a CUV, or crossover utility vehicle). This full-size model, which will offer performance rivaling that of Porsche's respected Cayenne, will feature unique Falcon Wing doors (the term "gull wing" apparently wasn't disruptive enough) and seating for seven adults---plus ample room for luggage, golf clubs, and antique furniture.

General Motors has issued two new teaser images of the 2016 Chevrolet Camaro, this time showing the exhaust tips and the LT1 engine while also announcing that the next gen Camaro SS will have dual mode exhaust, adjustable drive modes and the high tech magnetic suspension setup from the 5th gen ZL1 and the C7 Corvette.

Will Georgia EV Tax Hurt Tesla Model S Sales?

Last week, Georgia eliminated the state's $5,000 electric car (EV) tax credit---the biggest state-based tax credit in the nation---and replaced it with a $200 annual EV tax (more than drivers of gasoline-powered cars pay).
