Volt Update: 50 Mile Electric Range

















General Motors has released an updated electric-only range of 50 miles for the Chevrolet Volt, up from 40 miles. The further it will go, the less gas stops you have to make, and the less money you spend on fuel. I would say this is a good improvement.

GM Thinking Green With The Volt

General Motors has announced it has a plan for old or worn out Volt batteries. While new, the 16 kilowatt-hour battery used in the Volt stores enough energy to power a 60W light bulb for about 267 hours or move the Volt 40 miles. As the battery ages it will loose storage capacity, which is why GM has issued a standard 8 year and 100,000 mile warranty on its battery pack.

According to GM the battery will last for 10 years and at that point its capacity will have decreased to about 10 kilowatt-hours. This is the point where GM says the battery can be used on the power grid. 10 kilowatt-hours is about what a single-family household will use in 8-10 hours. A market for used batteries will be a great way to reuse the batteries and give owners some trade-in value for the old parts.

Volt Manufacturing: Teri Quigley

Teri Quigley, the Plant Manager at the General Motors Detroit-Hamtramck plant answers some questions about manufacturing the Volt. With the Chevrolet Volt going on sale in November, Ms. Quigley explains some of the unique manufacturing tasks they had to confront while making the first Volts.

Congratulations to the Seattle Storm

The Seattle Storm have won the WNBA Championship for the second time! They arrived in Seattle and their plane was sprayed down (in celebration) by tarmac firehoses. The team was greeted by fans and media at the airport (the video below) and later tonight a championship parade and celebration will be held. The parade will begin at the base of the Space Needle and end at the KeyArena, where the celebration will take place.

Your Safety Today: A Look Back

In terms of vehicle safety, 1959 wasn't the year to be getting in a wreck. I wasn't alive in the 50's, but after watching this video I feel much safer in newer vehicles. Chevrolet has made major strides in vehicle safety in the last ten years to make sure we are safe on the roads.

Old Commercial, Still Funny

This is a commercial from 2008 for the 5-door Subaru WRX STI. Its a few years old, but its still funny.

Subaru Celeno: The New Style Subaru

Subaru is at it again with another bold concept car. This design comes from car designer Xuacu PĂ©rez Quesada and represents Subaru's attempt to spice up a line once described as "boring". I look forward to seeing more concepts like the Celeno and Hybrid Tourer to see where Subaru's designs are headed.

Cars.com Review of the Chevrolet Cruze

Chevrolet Announces Cruze Hatchback

Even before the U.S. release of the Chevrolet Cruze this month, Chevrolet has announced a hatchback model of the popular Cruze. The Cruze has been available outside the U.S. for some time now and with its success its only natural for GM to release a new model. From the side the Cruze hatchback looks a lot like a 5-door Subaru Impreza. Unfortunately this model will not be available in the U.S. and there is no word of if or when it could be released in North America. Maybe we will know more once the five-door hatchback Cruze is unveiled at the Paris Motor Show this month.

Spy Shots: Subaru FT-86

Thanks to Brenda Priddy & Company for getting these shots of the Subaru FT-86 coupe . The FT-86 coupe is an STI variant that both Subaru and Toyota will produce. It was thought the Subaru version would be rear-wheel drive, but rumors suggest it could be all-wheel drive like the rest of the Subaru line. Find more about the FT-86 at http://bit.ly/c8dcGE

I wouldn't suggest trying this otherwise you could end up in our service center! The Subaru WRX STI was designed for rallying, so it might fare pretty well.

Chevy Trucks Move Toyota!

Good thing Toyota has a nice Chevrolet HD to tow their race car around! Apparently the Tundra just can't get them to races on time. Thanks Bill for the picture from the Evergreen State Fair!
