Commented On: Your Chevrolet Volt Needs A Charge Sustaining Mode: Here’s Why

Anton is right. Gaming mountain mode in this fashion (where there's no mountains) will essentially sustain a 10-20 mile charge(~23%SOC) and preserve it for later use. So while not identical, it works well enough for most people.

Lot's of nice words. But you obviously do not have sufficent knowledge of the coolant to cell interface to make such a determination. All I'll say is essentially ALL of your conclusions are in error.

What a bunch of hogwash. Another arm-chair lawyer/engineer.
Spreading misinformed FUD is about all they can do.

Commented On: NHTSA: Chevy Volt Battery Pack Fix OK, Ends Investigation

This article is incorrect.It states "GM’s proposed fix includes adding extra steel reinforcements at each side of the car and throughout its transmission tunnel to spread impact energy away from the lithium-ion battery pack" Nothing is addded "to each side of the car" as stated. The braces shown in the diagram on each side of the car are existing structures and are actually the front seat mounting brackets (welded to the floor pan). The proposed structural enhancements ALL mount within the tunnel (calling it a "transmission tunnel" is a misnomer when it actually houses the battery) and both add material thickness to the tunnel (adjacent to the aforementioned seat anchor braces) and augment y-axis stiffness an the existing cross-tunnel brace

Commented On: IIHS Sticks By Volt Safety Rating: No Pack Issues After Crash Tests

You clearly don't know what you talking about. There is NOTHING safer about the Ford and Nissan battery chemistry OR it's mounting. In the event of a crash thre is always the potential for the battery to become damaged. OEMs (including GM in th Volt) have gone to great lengths to protect the battery from damage and install electrical safety disconects and circuit breakers should short circuits occur. The "additional" tests NHTSA performed (AFTER the Volt had achieved the 5-star side impact standard I might add) were NOT among the crash tests currently mandated by FMVSS but a series of additonal tests (at still unknown speeds) that intentionally attempted to breach the battery. Maybe get all the facts before you get "hysterical"

While the concept is nothing new. Who or what entity is testing and regulating the emissions from this MT generator? My guess is nobody. So that'a a loophole that needs to be dealt with.

Commented On: Electric-Car Sales: Does GM Have A Chevy Volt Sales Problem?


Green Car Reports 0 Views 32 comments
GM’s Volt team has recently (Friday) stated quite clearly the supply challenges they have been faced over the past 10 months and 6 days since the Volt was launched. If you choose to disbelieve them, that's your prerogative.
Speculate away...

robok2,
What was the MSRP for the car you had ordered?
The $350 lease deal is only for the base Volt with zero RPO options. Adding $4000 in options can have a significant "hit" to the lease price. Plus there's a few dealers that continue to use the incorect money fators in their "calculators" and software tools.If you're still interested in a Volt I suggest you do a search on gm-volt.com where more of these details are exposed. A Volt CAN be had for $350/ month.
