Chevrolet Volt: Electric Vehicle By GM

July 15, 2010 by · Leave a Comment 

General Motors earlier today has announced that its electric vehicle Chevrolet Volt will be offering an 8-year/ 100,000-mile warranty on its batteries made of lithium ion. This is perhaps the longest warranty being offered for electric vehicles today.

Performance of these batteries according to GM should not be affected by extreme conditions such as climate changes or aggressive driving. Tests, validations and simulations of these batteries have been ongoing since 2007.

The Chevrolet Volt, according to GM, can go as far as 340 miles on a fully charged battery. The first 40 miles is driven only by electricity, using it 16-kilowatt-hour lithium ion battery. As electric power runs low, there is a smooth transition that drives the vehicle using a fuel-powered engine.

With growing consciousness about the environment and energy savings, this is an attractive package to potential customers. This is a good alternative that seeks to lessen our dependence on petroleum products. The warranty length assures customers that they are getting safe and reliable products from GM.
