Foreign Review
The electric car revolution is here! Well almost, the electric car as we currently know, still suffers from major defects, including range anxiety and recharge times. The Chevrolet Volt seems to have answered these problems by installing an on-board generation in the form of a 4-cylinder engine.
If Chevrolet defines the Volt as an electric vehicle some others may not. Indeed, like other electric cars you can recharge the batteries when they are empty, usually after 38 miles or so. After that a small internal combustion engine is there to act as a generator. And technically the motor never even turns the wheels directly.So, let us summarize. The Volt is powered by an electric motor providing a whopping 149 horsepower and 273 lb-ft. of torque which is equal to a 2.0 liter turbo diesel like the Jetta TDI. Performance isn’t bad either with 0-60 MPH coming in less than 9 seconds.

The electric motor provides a range of about 38 miles according to the EPA which is more than enough for shorter commutes. Once the batteries are depleted, the small engine automatically starts to ensure the batteries remained charged. This generator is 1.4 liter 4-cylinder petrol engine.

Almost conventional sedan
A good look, this Volt, finally, it does not stand out much from other sedans in the segment. Length of 4.5 m is divided between a cover and a good sized cockpit ends with a tailgate. Considered in this light, the Volt pushes nothing habits. While we note some specific features, like the special treatment ends, but that’s it!

Inside, things are changing. The center console is touch and almost devoid of buttons and the instrumentation is the picturesque genre! It notes an eco-futuristic graphics, based on small ball indicating your level of eco-driving, and various instructions and information on the operation of the thing. A small adjustment period is necessary, however … On the doors, painted plastic is invited. At the rear, only two seats, but a comfortable habitability. All this would be rather nice if the build quality was perceptible despite a pretty hefty price, the Volt can boast a high quality finish. Far from it!

Four driving modes
Depending on your mood, four modes are available: Normal (which will be used most of the time), Sport (with a sharp throttle response, no real interest), Mountain (to activate, if you like, 15 minutes before embarking on a highly rugged terrain: the generator will then load history retain enough juice when it gets steep) and load holding (which starts the engine … to maintain the battery charge This is useful!. to circulate in urban areas prohibited combustion vehicles).

It will take getting used to, but with an electric car, press the start button does not move much, except for a few dials that light up! Pull the shifter on the “Drive” position, release the brakes smoothly and go! Flexibility, the Volt is operated without thinking. You might think in a conventional automatic car, if it was total silence and lack gearshift … out due to lack of gear! Fairly precise steering, running gear rigorous, the Volt is in no way a punishment! Better: the electric motor displays an unusual energy and pickup are free! The pushing sensation is closer to that of a jet (intensity less) than a conventional automobile. Curious, but you get used to it!

38 Miles Electric Driving
If your commute work-sleep do not exceed 60 km, good news, it is perfectly possible not to consume every drop of gas! To go on holiday, the situation is different, but still attractive, especially if you have the opportunity to recharge the batteries midterm. With the generator, the battery life is increased to almost 500 kilometers. The activation of the latter is almost imperceptible and insulation deserves a medal!

The Volt displays a resolutely avant-garde technology, but do not pose the reach of every budget. Fortunately, the equipment shows full evidenced automatic air conditioning, cruise control, monitoring tire pressure, leather upholstery, connections USB/iPod/MP3, speakerphone key, alloy wheels.

Conclusion
Convincing, the Chevrolet Volt is no doubt. Its versatility is much greater than that of a conventional electric car and energy balance outperforms a conventional hybrid car. Icing on the cake, she is even fun to drive! But this technological armada has a price and unfortunately did not translate into the quality of the finish

The Volt by definition is is not a true electric car. Yes it runs on electricity alone but there is an engine on-hand that acts like a generator in order to increase the range to a few hundred miles. But first things first: when the battery is charged, the Volt drives in all-electric mode, with the larger of the two electric motors. However when the speed limit goes up the efficiency drops and a small electric motor kicks in to help the larger motor. Under certain load conditions, the small electric motor to help, which is normally intended only as a generator for the range extender mode. This is possible because the drive is in addition to the two electric motors from three clutches and a planetary gear set. So both motors can be operated together at a reduced speed.

At high speeds is diverted via the planetary gear part of the internal combustion engine drive force to relieve the electric motor and again to provide also for a better overall efficiency. In principle, the drive is then a power-split hybrid, but with stronger electric note. However, the manufacturer is now caught a little of it that he wanted to praise the Volt necessarily as an electric car. This is also true for the question of the consumption cycle, the Volt should actually be measured.

A range extender must save fuel
Whether this reasoning is helpful in meeting the U.S. media, is another question. What overlook some U.S. critics studiously or in simple ignorance, is the purpose of the construction described: When the engine is turned on because the battery is at the end, of course, it is of interest to minimize fuel consumption. Of course, it is then absolutely plausible to perform a power splitting to improve the overall efficiency.
GM thus promises a reduction of 10 to 15 percent of consumption, as it would be purely serial possible. In any case, to show North American media quite impressed by the real consumption. The Montreal Gazette, for example, was initially purely electrically 67.4 km far surely under favorable conditions. After 75.8 miles the onboard computer showed a fuel consumption of 0.38 liters of – admittedly a silly value, the only oversubscribed illustrates basically how difficult is a consumption measurement.

But how is one to determine the consumption at all? Battery and tank run empty, or – better yet – take the test from the outset with a dead battery? In principle yes, but that is removed is also the purpose of the Chevrolet Volt. The idea is precisely short distances to drive electric, the engine has indeed ideally only a temporary job. Maybe a graded cycle would be helpful, such as 50, 100, 250 and 500 km and only under trickle charge, so motorists can start with the values ​​a bit.

After a report of the New York Times by the way even the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency does not know quite how an appropriate standard is to look for the consumption measurement. After all, there is already a tendency for the classification of the Chevy Volt: The report is to be examined as a plug-in hybrid, the Nissan Leaf , however, as an electric car, but it was also clear for quite some time.
One may criticize GM that they do not use a special, optimized for range extender internal combustion engine, as is being considered in Europe with some development service providers and manufacturers. You but to scourge that a little power-split hybrid operation is to optimize the consumption is outrageous.
