Chevy Volt

AutoBlog and Engadget are both running stories on the Chevy Volt. What once was only a concept car, is now actually going into the production pipeline, according to the AutoBlog article.

The Chevy Volt will be designed in two versions, one fuel cell and one a series hybrid. The hybrid sounds really exciting to me. I’ve wanted a hybrid since I first read about building one in an old Mechanix Illustrated article (Feb. 1980). The plans are here. I ordered the plans, but they were more involved than I was ready for.

It’s great that US automakers are finally ready to put this type of vehicle into production.

The original articles are here and here.
