Lutz: GM Plans Electric Version of Chevy Volt
EV World Publisher Note: the following AP news story just appeared
DETROIT (AP) -- General Motors Co. will build a pure-electric vehicle by expanding the Chevrolet Volt's battery pack and removing its internal combustion engine, Vice Chairman Bob Lutz said.
He would not say exactly when such a vehicle would make it into showrooms, but said it would be 'technologically trivial' to switch the Volt to pure electric.
The Volt can run 40 miles on a charge from a standard home power outlet. After the battery runs down, a 1.4-liter four-cylinder internal combustion engine takes over and generates electricity to power the car.
