HOT Chevrolet Volt 2011

The Chevrolet Volt 2011 is a plug-in hybrid electric vehicle to be produced by the Chevrolet division of General Motors and expected to be launched as a 2011 model. Sales are scheduled to begin in November 2010 and, even through GM’s Chapter 11 reorganization, the automaker has kept the Volt on or ahead of schedule. The Volt’s propulsion system will be based on GM’s new Voltec platform, which differs significantly from GM’s earlier BAS Hybrid and Two-Mode Hybrid systems. The first pre-production test car based on the full Volt design was built in June 2009 in Warren, Michigan and by mid-August 30 Volts had been built and tested in various conditions. The electric power for the vehicle is sourced from its on-board lithium-ion batteries which are charged by an electrical power outlet and/or the gasoline engine.

The Volt’s 16 kWh (8.8 kWh usable) lithium-ion battery pack can be fully charged by plugging the car into a 120-240VAC residential electrical outlet using the provided SAE J1772 compliant charging cord. No external charging station will be required. Unlike most current commercially available electric hybrids, the actual propulsion of the Volt is accomplished exclusively by the electric motor. With fully charged batteries, enough electrical energy will be stored to power the Volt up to 40 miles (64 km).

This distance is capable of satisfying the daily commute for 75% of Americans, whose commute is on average 33 miles (53 km). After 40 miles (64 km), a small 4-cylinder gasoline internal combustion engine drives a 53 kW (71 hp) generator effectively extending the Volt’s potential range to over 300 miles (483 km) on a single tank of gasoline.
