Thankyou for spreading the good word. I will spend some time on redding.com and read those articles you mentioned.Hello,
Thank you for the kind remarks. Actually, all the links and Forum dialogs at gm-volt.com helped my EREV research immensely. In a way, you all helped write this.
FYI, my monthly column frequently deals with environmental or energy issues. Just search redding.com 's website if you want to read my thoughts on oil, PV, hydroelectric, wind, Earth Day, cycling, ozone-depleting refrigerants, etc.
If it would help I'd sign up twice to buy a volt.It was a Renewable Energy World article last month that first clued me to the Volt. Somehow, I've missed all the prior publicity. The past couple of weeks, I've been catching up on the wider spectrum of electric vehicles at at EV World.
Now that's what I need and it is going to take a major player, someone with billions to spend, to bring this to market.The Volt will pack a 160-HP high-torque electric motor under the hood. GM's specs predict 0-60 in 8 seconds and max speed at 125 mph. America's new green car will flex some muscle. This ain't no wimpy Prius.
