The 2011 Chevrolet Volt, a revolutionary four-door, four-seat hybrid vehicle, is powered by a lithium-ion battery and a flex-fuel powered four-cylinder generator.  The Green Chevrolet Volt optimizes the way it drives depending on variables such as weather, the electrical features in use and consumer driving style. The Volt can travel up to 40 miles on a full charge — completely free of gas and emissions, yet has the merits of instant torque and horsepower from the electric motors.  Step on the gas and feel Camaro-like torque while emitting no emissions.  For more information visit

With the exciting launch of the Chevrolet Volt, Electric and electrified vehicles are all the current rage among automakers. With more electric vehicles being purchased, researchers are hard at work figuring out what to do with all those electric batteries once their automotive life reaches the end of the line.
According to General Motors and power productivity ace, ABB Group, Chevrolet Volt battery systems will still have a lot of juice – up to 70 percent – after they have reached the end of their vehicle life. In fact, GM predicts 33 used Volt batteries will have the ability to provide enough power to 50 households for several hours during a power outage.
GM and ABB together have come up with an energy storage system, consisting of a grid-tied power inverter that could be used to charge and discharge the Volt battery pack. The grid would store electricity and come on-line during outages or in times of peak demand, ultimately saving customers and utilities money. The prototype is built for 25-kilowatt/50-kWh applications, which equals the average energy use of about five homes.
While GM and ABB continue developing the prototype, Pablo Valenica, senior manager for Battery Lifecycle Management, will oversee his team while they work on battery systems capable of use beyond their automotive life in all future GM cars.
