IMAGINE: A DAILY COMMUTE WITHOUT USING A DROP OF GAS.

Hi All!

Do you know what Chevrolet is doing at this point of time? Ok I’ll tell you. This big auto player is going to rock the international car market by manufacturing the most comprehensive electric car.

The extended-range electric vehicle is no longer just a rumor. Chevrolet has put tremendous design and engineering resources in place to make this vehicle a reality.

The Concept Chevy Volt, with its revolutionary E-Flex Propulsion System will be different than any previous electric vehicle because it will use a lithium-ion battery with a variety of range-extending onboard power sources, including gas and, in some vehicles, E85
ethanol to recharge the battery while driving.

When it comes to plugging in, the Volt will be designed to use a common 110–volt household plug. For someone who drives less than 40 miles a day, Chevy Volt will use zero gasoline and produce zero emissions. For longer trips, Chevy Volt’s range-extending power source kicks in to recharge the lithium-ion battery pack as required. It expect a driving range of an estimated 640 miles.

“We have devoted significant resources to this project: Over 200 engineers and 50 designers are working on the Volt alone, and another 400 are working on related subsystems and electric components. That’s how important we think this is, and that’s how much stock we place in the future of extended-range electric vehicles like the Chevy Volt.”- Tony Posawatz, Vehicle Line Director.

Do you think this car would change Indian automotive industry? I certainly think so. If I am ever able to lay my hands on this car, i would simply zoom off.

  1. What a car..Lovely.
    I’ll sure go for it if I could.

  2. All said and done. We (common people) have realized the importance of alternate fuel. But are we sure, our Governments and the Auto Manufacturer’s realize this!!! Specially in the case of India. I do not see the Indian Government or car manufacturer’s making any iniatiation to bring alternate fuel technology in India. It’s high time the Auto markers and Government in India research and work on this GLOBAL issue. We are yet to have a economic hybrid car in India!!! Car manufacturer’s have a responsibity to do this, along with the Government support. Let me right this bold “WE NEED CHEAPER HYBRID CARS IN INDIA” Or altest cars the middle class people can use and consume less, expensive fuel(oil). Today each time i drive a car.. i feel guilty of consuming something.. which is soon going to be extint!!!

  3. I’d certainly go for something a car like this…Looks good, in fact, the front reminds me of a Maybach..quite macho, nice… But while we need these kinds of vehicles on the roads, we need to understand that Mass Transit Systems are the real way to go to solve our cities’ problems..Even if we replace all the cars of Mumbai with this car, we’re still going to have traffic jams, n ultimately we’re stuck..but that aside, I’d love to have this car…
