Chevrolet Volt Review

Chevrolet Volt is a model which connects most of GM's hopes of recovery, even if the car is still in showrooms. Dezvoltarea este insa in faza finala, iar Volt, conceput sa bata Toyota Prius, vine cu performante extraordinare. But development is in the final stage and the Volt, designed to beat the Toyota Prius comes with extraordinary performance.

It has been said many times that the Volt is about the last lifeboat for GM, even after the company reorganization. Si pentru ca viitorul pare sa apartina hibridelor si modelelor electrice este clar ca un astfel de model ar sustine compania. And because the future seems to belong hibridelor and electric models is clear that such a model would support the company. Dar ca sa impui un astfel de model in Statele Unite trebui sa bati Toyota Prius. But to impose such a model in the U.S. have to beat the Toyota Prius. Neaparat, pentru ca Prius e un rege al hibrizilor in State si are deja o imagine excelenta, multe personalitati cu inclinatii ecologice afisandu-se la volanul acestui model nipon. Definitely, because the Prius is a king of hybrids in the state and already has an excellent picture, many personalities with organic inclinations being displayed behind the wheel of this model is Japanese.

Toyota Prius - hybrid Chevrolet Volt - Electric
GM a abordat o alta strategie decat niponii cu al lor Prius. Modelul fabricat de Toyota este un hibrid , adica dispune de un propulsor normal, cu ardere interna si unul electric. Prius poate rula fie propulsat de motorul electric, fie de cel termic, fie de amandoua, in functie de situatie. Si Chevrolet Volt are doua motoare, unul termic si unul electric, dar este considerat model electric . GM has discussed a strategy other than their niponii with the Prius. The model is a hybrid made by Toyota, that has a normal propeller, internal combustion and electric one. Prius can run the electric motor is powered by either the heat or of both, depending on the situation. And Chevrolet Volt has two engines, one thermal and one power, but is considered a model power. Aceasta pentru ca doar motorul electric propulseaza masina. This is because only the electric motor propels the car. Cel termic nu este cuplat la roti prin vreun sistem de transmisie, rolul fiind acela de a incarca bateriile care alimenteaza motorul electric. The heat is coupled to rotate through any transmission system, the role being to recharge the batteries that supply the electric motor. Practic, motorul cu ardere interna de pe Volt este doar generator. Basically, internal combustion engine on the Volt is just the generator.

Toyota Prius relies mainly on thermal engine, a 1.8-liter 99 hp, but can run only on electric engine in the city at low speeds. Ca urmare inregistreaza un consum urban de 3,9 l/100 km. Aceasta pentru ca motorul conventional este cuplat la transmisie si propulseaza masina. Following register an urban consumption of 3.9 l/100 km. This is the conventional engine and transmission is coupled to propel the car. De cealalta parte, Volt este propulsat doar de motorul electric, iar cel termic porneste doar cand bateriile nu mai furnizeaza suficient curent, pentru a le incarca. On the other hand, the Volt is powered only by the electric motor and the heat starts only when the batteries no longer provides enough electricity to upload. Faptul ca functioneaza la un regim controlat, mult mai lejer decat daca ar propulsa masina, face ca motorul conventional de pe Volt sa consume doar 1.02 l/100 km (230 mile/galon) . The fact that work in a controlled system, more than if just putting the car make the Volt a conventional engine to consume only 1.02 l/100 km (230 miles / gallon).

Chevrolet Volt GM anunta ca Volt poate rula pana la 64 km in oras, fara ca motorul normal sa fie nevoit sa incarce bateriile. Aceasta distanta este considerata suficienta pentru un rulaj zilnic normal, cum ar fi transportul pana la serviciu si inapoi. GM announces that the Volt can run up to 64 km in the city, without having to normal engine recharge the batteries. This distance is considered sufficient for normal daily driving, such as transport to work and back. Peste noapte, bateriile lui Volt pot fi incarcate de la orice priza normala. Incarcarea facuta in acest fel, de la priza este necesara pentru ca Volt poate ajunge la o autonomie maxima (cu motorul conventional incarcand bateriile) de pana la 480 km . Overnight, Volt's batteries can be loaded from any normal outlet. Charge made in this way, the outlet is needed for the Volt can reach a maximum autonomy (Loading the batteries with a conventional engine) up to 480 km. Adica, la un moment dat, motorul normal nu mai poate incarca bateriile in acelasi ritm in care energia din acestea este consumata. I mean, at some point, the engine usually can not recharge the batteries at the same rate at which energy is consumed therefrom. partea buna este ca acest inconvenient intervine dupa aproape 500 km parcursi. The good thing is that this shortcoming comes after nearly 500 kilometers.

Chevrolet Volt va fi lansat pe piata in a doua parte a anului viitor, iar GM estimeaza un cost de utilizare (in ceea ce priveste energia) a aproape 3 centi/mila. Chevrolet Volt will be launched in the second half of next year, and GM estimates a cost of use (in terms of energy) of about 3 cents per mile. Pretul masinii va fi in jurul a 40.000 de dolari , sensibil mai mult decat costa Toyota Prius. Unit car will be around $ 40,000, considerably more expensive than the Toyota Prius.
