    Default Chevrolet Volt - GM's Concept Electric Vehicle - Could Nearly Eliminate Trips to the

    The Chevrolet Volt concept sedan, powered by the E-flex System – GM’s next-generation electric propulsion system – could nearly eliminate trips to the gas station.
    The Chevrolet Volt is a battery-powered, four-passenger electric vehicle that uses a gas engine to create additional electricity to extend its range. The Volt draws from GM’s previous experience in starting the modern electric vehicle market when it launched the EV1 in 1996, according to GM Vice Chairman Robert A. Lutz.

    I remember in the 80’s a guy who built something like this.

    The car was an electric vehicle and you could charge it at home, but it also had a small BS gas engine that would charge it as needed for long trips.

    Sounds like a great idea, but I’m wondering why it took so long.
