Chevy Volt...The Integration of Car and Technology

The Chevy Volt is getting closer and closer to its public launch date, and so far the Volt's future is looking rather promising. In this latest video from Translogic, Bradley Hasemeyer takes the Volt through a thorough test run to see how the vehicle really performs.

Bradley firsts begins by talking about the features of the car with several of the engineers that have worked to design the Chevy Volt. The highlighted features are the available 240 volt charging station that takes charge time from 10 hours to 4 hours, the integration with smartphones, the impressive braking systems, and the different drive modes that the Volt offers.

One of the great things that seems to surface through this video is just how much Chevrolet has focused on integrating technology into the car. As you watch the video, it should be clear how much technology goes into the vehicle to provide a smooth ride for the people in the car. Bradley hits it right on the head when he says that Chevy is "trying to integrate the car into your lifestyle, instead of you into the lifestyle of the car."

As you watch the video, pay attention to the performance aspects (0-60 time, sport mode, mountain mode), and pay attention to the integration of smartphone technology (it is really neat). Further, notice the comparison with the Nissan Leaf and Toyota Prius. It is rather impressive to hear that the Chevy Volt has a seemingly better experience than both of those vehicles as well.

Enjoy the video below and to see the whole story head over to Translogic.
