Despite Government Motors sponsoring Communist propaganda, despite the Chevy Volt costing taxpayers $250k per vehicle to produce, despite Big Government purchasing 1-in-every-4 hybrids sold, despite taxpayers losing $9 billion on GM’s IPO loss last year, despite Americans being forced to shell out an additional $7,500 worth of tax and ‘clean-car’ incentives for every Volt purchased, despite GMs’ $50 billion bailout, despite bankrupt GM distributing manager bonuses up to 50% of their salaries, despite GM spending $4 million on lobbyists in just 3 months due to horrible Volt sales, despite GM covering corporate transgender surgeries, despite perfectly timed hype from Motor Trend naming the government-subsidized Chevy Volt as ‘Car of the Year’ without a single Volt ever being sold, despite Chevy Volts randomly catching fire, despite…
Well, despite all that, it’s best we ignore America’s ballooning culture of corruption. For our children’s sake.
Lucky for us, Government Mafia, the engineers of this train wreck are unimpeachable experts at derailing anything that resembles an actual investigation; Solyndra, Project Gunrunner, National Board of Realtors, GE, Pigford, Petrobras, BP, …
Chevy Volt Fires: Government Stops Investigating Itself
(Bloomberg) U.S. regulators ended an investigation into why Chevrolet Volt electric cars caught fire, and said electric vehicles do not pose a greater risk of fire.
The conclusion by the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration came two weeks after General Motors Co. (GM) told owners to bring the vehicles to dealerships for repair.
“Based on the available data, NHTSA does not believe that Chevy Volts or other electric vehicles pose a greater risk of fire than gasoline-powered vehicles,” the agency said in an e- mailed statement today.
The government started investigating the Volt after a side- impact crash test in May led to a fire three weeks later. During that test, the lithium-ion battery pack broke open and coolant leaked into the battery. When the car was physically rotated as part of the test, more coolant leaked into a circuit board, leading to a fire. NHTSA replicated the fire in November and started an official probe Nov. 25.
“GM is proud of the technological innovation the Volt represents,” Greg Martin, a GM spokesman, said today in an e- mailed statement. “We appreciate the confidence our Volt customers continued to provide during the investigation.”
Nothing to see here folks. Now, anyone like candy?
Feds Announce $1,500 Incentive For California Chevy Volt Buyers
(LA Times) General Motors Co. plans to bring a special version of the Chevrolet Volt to the California market that will qualify the plug-in hybrid sedan for a $1,500 state rebate and a coveted carpool lane sticker.
The Volt, which the automaker has made the poster child for its environmental credentials, has sold slower in California than its all-electric rival, the Nissan Leaf — in part because it previously did not qualify as a vehicle solo drivers could use in the state’s network of time-saving carpool lanes.

Preparing Your Garage For A Chevy Volt
(via Doug Ross) Electric cars might save you money at the pump, but they sure don’t save you time filling up. A typical electric car… takes upwards of 20 hours to recharge a fully drained battery when using an standard 120-volt outlet. While this might not be a problem for those looking to buy a second car for occasional outings, it certainly won’t cut it if an electric car is meant to be your primary vehicle.
In order to achieve a quicker charge, you’ll need to hire an electrician to install a 240-volt, 40-amp line that connects directly to the circuit breaker, a hookup similar to the one you might have for an electric oven or clothes dryer. With the increase in voltage, you can cut your charging time down to seven hours for a Nissan LEAF and four hours for the Chevy Volt, which means an overnight charge makes it a more practical purchase for daily use.
Super-fast charging stations capable of pumping out 480 volts are already on the market, and can recharge a car in 30 minutes or less. But these souped-up charging stations are currently for commercial use only because most homes can’t handle the kind of voltage and amperage required, at least not without some major rewiring of the power grid.
