    Chevy cuts 4G LTE data price in half

    In the past two years, more than 2 million Chevrolet cars with 4G LTE data connections have been sold, and, according to GM, those connections have chewed through 3 million gigabytes of data. Now each of those bytes will cost half as much, because Chevrolet is dropping the price of its data by 50 percent. Where a 1 GB per month plan used to cost $20, now it’s $10. Annual plans are… Read More

    Chevrolet To Offer CarPlay And Android Auto In 14 Models Starting This Summer

    It’s about time. Chevy is going to start offering Apple CarPlay and Android Auto across its vehicle line. The rollout will start in a few weeks and eventually hit 14 Chevy models. Apple and Google announced these systems in early 2014 and have since signed on most automakers. Chevy joins just Hyundai in providing a launch timetable, though. Owners of 2016 Hyundai Sonata can visit dealers… Read More

  • The Chevy Mi-ray Concept Is A Hybrid Roadster Done Right


    Mi-ray is Korean for ‘future.’ Does that mean the Mi-ray concept is going into production? Probably not, but clearly shows Chevy still has it in them to design cutting edge concepts that push forward the perception of people movers. The just-unveiled Mi-ray mid-electric concept was designed the GM Advanced Design Studio in Seoul, which is only fitting as the concept debuted at… Read More

  • The Chevy Orlando Play-Doh Edition Hits London Streets


    Londoners, did you wake up to the sweet aroma of Play-Doh this morning? That’s the Chevy Orlando MPV. Or rather, that smell is from the 1.5 tons of Play-Doh making up a 1:1 scale model of Chevy’s upcoming people mover. The automaker polled 1,000 UK adults to figure out the most popular toy of their youth. Play-Doh won and even beat out LEGO by 17%. Of course this is just a bit… Read More

  • GM's Voltec Charging Station Costs May Total ~$2000

    While the Volt will charge overnight on a normal outlet, those with less predictable schedules may understandably want to opt for a 240V charging solution, which can cut the charge time to four hours. But you better believe you’re gonna pay. Read More

  • Chevy Volt 240V Home Charging Kit: $490 (That's Without Installation Taken Into Account)

    Chevrolet has just announced the price for the Chevy Volt home charging kit : $490. That’s the price “before installation,” mind you. How much are you looking at with installation? Read More

  • Corvette To Employ A Hybrid Powertrain In Next Generation? (Hopefully)

    There is nothing more American than the Corvette and its front-mounted V8 engine. Nothing. Not even the Mustang, baseball or Las Vegas. The V8 screams freedom of the open road. But that potent formula that’s been in use since the beginning might be getting slightly tweaked. GM’s VP of global engineering, Karl Stracke, mentioned to AutoWeek that the next Corvette might go hybrid… Read More

  • First pre-production Volt rolls off the line

    Things are looking good for the Volt. Chevy said that the first pre-production Volt rolled off the line yesterday. Of course, that doesn’t mean that you can buy one yet, but it’s still a pretty huge deal. For the future! Read More

  • The EPA could give the Chevy Volt a 230 MPG rating

    You know that strange viral marketing campaign popping up around the Interwebs as of late? Well, we know what it means now thanks to GM’s CEO Fritz Henderson and it’s somewhat impressive – and a tad dubious. GM is claiming that under the new EPA guidelines, the Chevy Volt will hit 230 MPG. The Volt would be the first car to ever earn a triple digit number. Take a look at… Read More

  • (Chevy) Autobots, roll out!

    Revealed today at the Chicago auto show is Chevy’s full lineup of vehicles in the upcoming sequel to last year’s blockbuster hit “Transformers.” There are four new characters this go around that include a concept Corvette, the Volt and two other concepts. I’m going to nap till June 26th like a bear. Someone wake me up the day before. Check out the three videos… Read More

  • Your car is efficient, but what about its sound system?

    As we enter this new, slightly different age of “efficiency as performance” (sounds weird, doesn’t it?), I predict we’ll be seeing a lot more of this “greening” in addition to the rather symbolic changes we’ve been seeing lately. Case in point: a stereo system designed to be lightweight and energy-efficient. Not something I would have thought of, but… Read More

  • What happens to the Chevy Volt, other electric cars if Detroit isn't bailed out?

    Let’s say that Congress refuses to give some of that bailout money to Detroit—does that effectively kill off electric cars like the Chevy Volt? That depends on who you’re talking to. Read More

    Test Drive is a new series that we’re starting at CrunchGear wherein we get a hands-on look at new or interesting modes of transportation. It’s not limited to just cars, either. We’ll take a look at just about anything from scooters to rockets and everything in between.

  • Chevy officially unveils the Volt

    There it is, folks. Isn’t she a beautiful? We’ve known for some time what the exterior of the Volt looks like but not much has been seen of the interior. The chaps at Autoblog compare it to something that Apple may have designed. Chevy has thrown out the traditional cluster gauge in favor of a 7-inch LCD with another one located in the middle of the dash. Both displays can be… Read More

  • Ladies and gentlemen, the Chevy Volt production model

    I promised myself that the next car I bought would be a real electric production car. Is this my next car? More importantly, can I afford it? Likely not, but that’s not the issue here. Pictures and info after the bump. Read More

  • At least 34,776 Eco-fiends want the Chevy Volt

    If a list compiled by a Chevy Volt enthusiast is accurate, GM is going to sell a eco-friendly boat load of Chevy Volts. Lyle Dennis, a New York neurologist with way to much time, gathered the 34,776 (at last count) on his website GM-Volt.com over the last year. The one glaring issue though, is that the average price they were willing to pay for the GM wunderkind worked out to $31k. Rumor is… Read More
