Chevy Volt Update: It's Fast and Quiet
USA Today’s James Healey took the latest Chevy Volt test mule for a spin recently, and he was impressed by the car that he says GM is “making up as it goes along.” The Volt has serious torque for quick launches that Healey says will “embarrass muscle-car drivers when the light turns green.”
He also found the Volt to be exceptionally quiet, more so than most hybrids. GM will add some sort of noisemaker to the Volt to alert blind pedestrians at crosswalks.
GM is unsure if it’ll sell the lithium-ion battery pack as part of the car or lease it separately so owners can replace it more easily.
It’s a must read for those interested in the Volt.
