    I've had range problems when needing to make several trips. Some of those might be planned -- for example having to do two roundtrips for a doctors appointment -- but sometimes when the trips are...

    What's interesting is that the Spark EV pack weighs about 75 pounds more than the existing Volt pack (475 lbs. versus 400 lbs) and generates less horsepower (130 HP versus 149 HP). It will be...
  3. Some more tidbits about the next generation Volt

    Noticed this on autolinedetroit.tv. Nothing earth shattering but confirmation of other reports. I find it fun getting these little pieces of the puzzle. Some people don't like to speculate. So if...

    Not to be Debbie Downer, but having been there I wouldn't choose a BEV. Maybe if it had 150 miles of range, but not under 100. Way too much hassle. Hopefully it will work for you. Will be fun to hear...

    Completely OT: My favorite Apple fanboy story is that a friend had a company which released a product for the iPhone. Naturally I checked out the review on Engadget. The review was positive but the...

    Hard to think about going back to an ICE vehicle. Really hard.

    Luckily you have both Keyes and Rydell so you should be able to find something that meets your requirements. I'd say good call on the...

    We're actually going to have the opportunity to get a hydrogen vehicle since we'll have a fueling station a mile or two from our house. My wife was stoked about getting one because of the range. Then...

    It's a good question and one which has been asked before. The short answer is "Now". First, the price of used Volts is influenced far more by the prices of other used cars than by the prices of new...

    My Leaf battery is pretty much EOL after 45,000 miles. No need to worry about 100,000 much less 200,000. On the other hand, the Tesla batteries seem to be holding up very well. They're on the other...

    I just see CarZin as wondering if the loss of range which he's observing is due to battery degradation. I don't think it is but it might be.

    I'm not confident that the small the loss of capacity...

    I think it's incredibly innovative. Planetary transmissions have been around for a long time, but how GM has used it in combination with two motors and an engine is slick.

    Something is definitely wrong. Idaho National Labs have driven a Volt over 70K miles and measured a drop of less than a kWh (16.5 kWh --> 15.8 kWh). This means no real drop in usable energy....

    No one else has reported anything like this. The OP here thinks there might be a couple of miles difference, but nothing like you're talking about and it could be any number of things. Do you...

    We had one member who took his car in. The dealer drove it and, based on the range it got, concluded that the battery had an issue. I'd think that the first step would be to field test to determine...

    In this case why didn't they support a bill which would have allowed all manufacturers to sell direct? Plus the reality is that different companies have different business models. Not every company...
