The GM Volt car “is a car with a fully-electric 161 horsepower engine, powered by Lithium-ion batteries. It can be charged via a 110 volt wall outlet and has a pure electric range of 40 miles. It has a small onboard gas/alt fuel motor that can charge the batteries on the fly allowing a range of up to 650 miles.”
If it is ever produced at prices we can afford, it and similar cars from other manufacturers will dramatically cut the dependence of cars on petrol and diesel. But will GM to get this one right?
