    I'm also thinking receiver given that you have five wireless communication issues between five unrelated pieces of hardware.

    I'm really bad at following patent applications but it certainly looks like it might be relevant. So you have MGB connected to the sun gear like it is now, MGA and the output connector to the...

    Don't know about the i3 but having tested this under semi-scientific conditions (four runs switching drivers after every run) I can say that on the Leaf you're wrong. Very similar. The Leaf feels...

    Jeff, I think GM has answered a lot of these questions. Motor Trend put it this way:

    But the real kicker is the complete redesign of the guts of this transmission. Instead of having one big honker...

    I'd get the 25K model and add an extended service plan if that's possible. That should help a lot with resale.

    Other than this I don't think it matters. If you drive the car 12K a year then in...

    We'll see how much pull you have! Only kidding. From the interviews I think you and your fellow focus group participants did manage to get the message through that the electric drive was vastly more...
  7. NY Times article helps set some limits

    I'd like to see 55 miles but my head says 50. Really doubt 60. My thinking is that the battery holds 18.4 kWh, which is what the Spark battery holds. The Volt can use 70% of that -- more actually but...

    I think there will be a fifth seat. Two main reasons, both suggested by Breezy. First is that a couple of months ago Larry Nitz went on record as saying Volt customers wanted three things in the next...

    That was my thinking but the Spark production is so small that the scale benefits may be so minor as to be ignored. They could be validating the cell format and configuration before introducing the...

    If you're GM Marketing, and you think California is THE MARKET for the Volt, and that social media is the way to market the car, why would you schedule the unveiling at the DETROIT auto show?...

    FYI WOT has said the Spark battery pack has 18.4 kWh of capacity.

    I may have been among the first to suggest that the cells would be the same, but there is at least a 100 pound difference between...

    The Facebook chat was a non-event. Disappointing actually. In part because no one was going to say anything interesting and in part because the format is not ideal for a chat, IMO.

    I've never...

    Nice job of putting together the weight numbers. Unfortunately I suspect there will be some additions with power seats and so forth, making the overall weight loss less. I was hoping for more mass...

    The Volt will NEVER get better MPG than a Prius in CS Mode. Just not possible. But this is only relevant if GM marketing continues its ineffectual ways. No one cares what CS Mode is. In fact 99% of...

    I think the assumption is that going from 3.3 kW charging to 6.6 kW charging would be more than "slightly better". To me slightly better would be along the lines of 3.8 kW charging. Something like...

    Oh, yes the Atkinson Cycle

    Our speculation that the new engine would be tuned to have characteristics of an Atkinson engine seems to have been right. Greencarreports says:
