GM VP: Chevy Volt Ready in 2010


Today was a big day for GM's concept Chevrolet Volt. First, they announced an official partnership with A123Systems for the creation of cheap viagra uk the Volt's batteries, then they told Reuters they had a firm production schedule that includes a 2010 sale date. If they stick to it, it will be the wow it's great buy generic cialis cheap first plug-in electric hybrid from any major manufacturer. GM vice chairman of Global Product Development Bob Lutz announced that GM and A123Systems have agreed to co-develop battery technology for the forthcoming Chevy Volt (and other GM E-Flex vehicles) using A123's nanophosphate battery technology.

"A123Systems is considered a forerunner in the development of nanophosphate-based cell technology, which, compared to other lithium-ion battery chemistries, provides higher power output, longer life and http://webstuff.nl/viagra-prescriptionsgeneric-viagra-sale safer operations over the life of the battery."

This does not necessarily mean that LG Chem is out of the running to www.viagra.com supply batteries for the Volt or other GM vehicles. The press release from GM notes that both A123Systems and LG Chem are potential suppliers for E-Flex vehicles. "A123Systems and LG Chem are both top-tier battery suppliers, with proven technologies," said Denise Gray, director of GM's Energy Storage Devices and Strategies. "We’re confident one, or possibly both of these companies’ solutions will meet our battery requirements for the E-Flex system." But the close cooperation between GM and A123 for the development of batteries specifically for GM's needs makes it more likely that A123Systems will end up as the major supplier for the final product.

After the press conference Reuters caught Lutz, and asked him more specifically about the Volt's time line. Lutz replied "We'll have some on the road for testing next spring, and we should have the what is viagra Volt in production by the end of nassmc.org 2010." That's the firmest language we've yet heard, and the only date currently set by any manufacturer for a plug-in hybrd.

Sweet! I will graduate by the end of '08 and but the end of '10 I should be ready financially for this to be my first car purchase.

Whoever can created an electric car that doesn't need gasoline or oil wins.
The batteries should be able to re-charged while the car is running.

:D

I want one.

I think hybrids are the perfect next step. We can wait 10 years for a pure electric if this arrives in 2010 it will clean up!

We should of had this 5 years ago.

2010.What took them so long. There was a time when U.S. automobile companies where the best levitra innovators and the Japanese copied us. Now the U.S. car manufactures are the last to market and they are looking to Japan and Europe for ideas on there next projects. Wake up GM and Ford. Hey, I guess its better late than never. By 2010 Toyota will have a hybrid engine in every one of there models and GM will have a single plug in hybrid.

A123 has been assisting people in making high powered vehicles for a long time. When the car companies tell us the only type of electric car they can make is one that is low powered and viagra cialis online inconvienient to use, they're lying. Regardless, i hope chevy does end up doing a project with A123. I hope they also realize the full potential of A123's systems. It would be nice to chinese viagra pills have an electric car that only took 20 minutes to charge and could drive 1000 miles before needing a re-charge.

And what fuel source do you think could be used to recharge the car while running? Solar is no where near powerful enough.

Battery energy density. This car is designed to be electric with a gasoline generator attached. The plug in hybrids you suggest Toyota will have are really gasoline engines with an electric assist. There is buy tramadol without a prescription a big difference. Calling the Volt a hybrid is really a misnomer. It is an electric car, pure and simple. Any plug in hybrid is a hack compared to this.

time. When the car companies tell us the only type of electric car they can make is one that is low powered and inconvienient to use, they're lying.

Not really. Batteries have only finally gotten to the http://www.omroepgroesbeek.nl/buy-levitra-now point where they are useful in an electric car. Recharging time is still a big factor, 6 hours is expected for the volt and the batteries will only last 40 miles.

It would be nice to have an electric car that only took 20 minutes to charge and could drive 1000 miles before needing a re-charge.

Shure, if you don't mind hauling around a semi's worth of batteries, and the cables you use to recharge are 2 inches thick and you cause a brown out every time you recharge your car.

I'm excited about this. I'm expecting to replace my car in 2016 and hope it will be with a volt. Now, please people, learn some basic electrical engineering when it comes to sws-bl.com practicality and physics. A lot of what you want and claim just isn't practical or possible with existing technology, much less technology we had 10 years ago. For one, batteries have been steadily improving for decades, and that has been the real hold back for an electric car. Batteries that have energy density enough to run a car a decent distance and we use it viagra medication will still recharge and hold a charge after 100,000 miles or more at a cost that makes a car affordable are only a recent invention. The Tesla Roadster that many tout costs $100,000, way beyond the cost of wow look it generic levitra effective almost everyone. This car is designed to be affordable.

I believe that GM will be coming out with plug-in hybrids before the Volt is released. I think that the next Saturn Green Line Vue Hybrid is going to be a plug-in hybrid. (See this GM press release:

The Volt is just one of a number of hybrid vehicles GM is coming out with.

If you would like further information about developments on www.pneumapaniagua.es the Volt, Lyle has a podcast of an interview with GM's Chief Vehicle Engineer for the Volt, Nick Zielinski:

That's all I have to say about the Volt.
