my first EV was a 2013 Volt, which I imported to Austria. After that, I tried a BMW I3 REX, but the range extender is not really developed for long distance rides. So I ended up with my next Chevy Volt a 2017, which is right now in Austria and on it´s way to get licensed. The Volt is not available in Europe - what a shame. It is the best car I ever had.
BUT: before this can be done, I need to know the lumen for the led low beam headlight.
There is a regulation, which needs a level automatic, if the light emission exceeds 2000 lumen.
I tried to chat with a GM agent, but they have no knowledge about lumen or can access any information about.
I tried to email GM with that request, but all I got was an email subscribtion to the newsletters, but no answer.
And I have no idea where to get this information - can anybody help me out on this??
Some technical data sheet on the front lights, I googled for days inside the internet without success.
The turning lights have to look (also) sideways, which was the easier way to cover and the system allowed to
add the two led lights.
Well, we will see, what other regulations will act as a trap.
Thank you to everyone, who is willing and trying to help.
Do you need a yellow turn signal light in the back ?...The USA Volt is red. I heard you have to use the mirror blinking light, since the control module of the European and American are different and control turning lights !!!.
