    So here is my personal preferences. I paid $44K for my Volt. If I bought roughly the same car now I think I could get it for $34-$35K. Given that Gen 2 has more range and better low end acceleration,...

    The Impala is a nice looking car. Huge improvement over the old one. It's actually so good, and with the new Cruze coming out, I don't see why GM still has the Malibu. That said, there is NO WAY I'd...

    First, I hope the coffee is good. Nothing like a nice cup to start the day.

    They've been talking about an EV architecture for several years. That's actually not new. FYI the BEV will be a a...

    1. I think the article is accurate if you read it carefully. The platform is new. However, it's the same platform that the new Cruze, and other smaller front wheel drive vehicles, will use. The...

    Some of the cars in fleets were in fact driven an abnormally larger percentage of the time in CS Mode. This is pretty easy to confirm. Just look at the odometer and the total number of gallons of gas...

    It can't. If the engine is off, and the carrier is not fixed, MGB holds the sun gear and MGA provides the torque. Or maybe I'm not understanding the question?

    Unfortunately I know next to nothing,...

    The grill looks quite different when you see the entire car, and the back seat, I'm not saying bench seat BTW, doesn't change the interior much one way or the other. I'm sure there are a couple of...

    Keeping in mind that opinions can differ, overall I liked the Volt better. Liked the ELR front a little better. The sides about the same. The Volt back end better. Keep in mind that, as mentioned,...

    Not to worry. The new one is way cooler than the current model. GM really seemed to get that the Volt needed to have some style and attitude. Think along the lines of a four door ELR without the Kim...

    Along these same lines, Pam Fletcher, doing a riff on the real estate saying of "location, location, location", has said that the top three things Volt owners wanted was "more range, more range, more...

    If guessing I'd go with 18.4 kWh on the theory that they'll use the same cells in the same configuration as they've used in the 2015 MY Spark. If you're right on miles/kWh and usable SOC then my...

    I agree that GM expected the details to be leaked. But after they held a press event and said customers wanted a fifth seat I never thought it was a question. (Plus the spy shot of the bench and the...

    Personally 99% of handicap parking is total BS, at lease where I live. Most of the time it's someone else driving the vehicle. That's technically a violation but it's never ever enforced. I'm also...

    Looking at the patent, there are a couple of paragraphs that talk about a direct drive using a "fixed ratio". (Page 5 on the pdf I downloaded). The key sentence would be "The first fixed ratio is a...

    It's direct drive. Both MGA and MGB would be freewheeling. The engine would be directly turning the wheels.

    I think you'll be disappointed. The car was very nice. A few caveats are that it wasn't a production car, it wasn't well lit, and I honestly don't know what the interior of the Cruze looks like. Also...

    I suspect Fulgerite meant the flagship sedans, which in fact Tesla is outselling. For example, YTD BMW has sold about 8K 7 Series sedans whereas Tesla has sold 13K Model S sedans. That's a big...

    The fifth would be fixed ratio direct drive. Engine on, either torque transmitting mechanism engaged, both motor/generators off and freewheeling. One torque mechanism for low speeds and launch; the...

    The front end was my least favorite part. But in person and as a whole car you have a different impression. You would never mistake it for a Mazda or a Prius for that matter. They've taken the design...
