Chevy to build 50% more Volts in 2012

Posted in Automotive by Shane McGlaun on August 2nd, 2010

The Chevrolet Volt extended range electric vehicle is finally set to come to market. The car will carry a $41,000 sticker price. A lease on the Volt will go for $350 per month and the first year will see limited production.

Production will increase the next model year and Chevrolet has announced that by 2012 it will have increased production by 50% to 45,000 units. More units built and sold will help reduce the cost and hopefully that steep price will come down significantly.

One of the most interesting coming electric cars is the Chevrolet Volt. The Volt has an electric drive train and runs exclusively from electric power. However, the Volt does have a gas-powered generator for making electricity to extend the cars driving range.

Chevrolet has announced that 4,400 Volt buyers will be eligible for a free 240V charge station. The 240V charge station will allow the Volt to recharge faster than the 120V cable that the car comes with. The charge stations will be paid for from Recovery Act funds.

Chevy Volt may be powered by Google soon

General Motors has found a technology partner to help extend the Chevy Volt’s futuristic OnStar functionality and Motor Trend says it’s Google. The company will reportedly “sell its Android operating system for in-car use.”

This is the first we’ve heard of Google selling Android, but GM doesn’t seem to mind. They’re ready to use the open-source OS anyway. This should help make GM cars more attractive to buyers and we can’t wait to see what kind of apps they come up with.
