I met the ecogeek behind GM-Volt.com at this year's LA Auto Show and, let me tell you, we're lucky to have him. Lyle is a neurologist who just happened to grasp the awesomeness of the Chevy Volt, and, in his enthusiasm, started up a blog following the details of the Volt's development.
In return for his hard work, GM has given him a remarkable amount of access to the technology and their team. And to take advantage of that access, he asked readers of his blog to provide him with some questions. Well, now, a couple weeks after the show, he's finished transcribing the answers to dozens of questions he asked of the Volt's vehicle line engineer, the head of battery development of GM, and even Bob Lutz, GM's Vice Chairman.
The questions and answers are all available at GM-Volt.com, and a lot of it is tremendously interesting. It's amazing to see the dedication, work, and risk being taken by GM on this project. They want this car to matter...they want to regain their edge. And Lyle wants to keep an eye on them and make sure they do it. So check it out...and maybe sign up for his ever-interesting mailing list as well. It's one of the few mailing lists that I actually read every time it comes into my inbox.
