CHEVY VOLT!


A vehicle that can go 230 miles on a gallon of gasoline in town. Waugh! That is something. It is understood that the car is initially powered with a Lithium-ion battery, whose range is augmented by a gas-powered electrical motor unit. As to going green, that is only half the story. The battery has to be charged off the grid! which still runs largely on coal, unless nuclear power is popularized by sorting out how to handle nuclear waste. But this is a huge step in green transportation, that should encourage investments in domestic solar and wind power generation. Congratulation GM before we know exactly how you did it.
