I was wondering what the max power draw from the volt battery pack is likely to be without damaging it? Would it be possible for GM to add a second electric motor of the same or similar size to make the car AWD and give it more umph. Don't get me wrong what they're planning with the volt is great but I've really become attached to AWD cars with a descent amount of acceleration that I can drive year round without any worries about not being able to make it up a hill; because of limited traction. I don't live in the mountains or anything, but it is hilly and I've seem plenty of fwd cars with snow tires loose traction halfway up a hill and slide down into the ditch or simply get stuck. I realize that this would decrease range a bit, but I wouldn't think it would be a huge amount. So long as the motors wouldn't pull too much wattage during heavy acceleration and cook the batteries.
