GM and IBM Join Efforts to Create the Sophisticated Chevy Volt

GM has been working in the anticipated and revolutionary Chevy Volt during this fall. Today GM will take the Volt to IBM’s offices in North Carolina to finally show the hybrid car and also to celebrate their partnership, as IBM provided the software.

The Volt’s creation main intention is to demonstrate how well a high tech car can work during these times. The car comes with internet connection and smartphone inspired in car controls.
It has a motor to move the car, a battery and its own gas engine to pump a generator that charges the battery. It monitors the battery cells as well as cooling and heating systems to ensure the most efficiency of the battery and car.

As in a cell phone or laptop, you can see charge status. Also, how much mileage is available and the car will let you know when to charge. You will even be able to schedule when to charge your car from a smartphone.

According to executive director of electrical systems, hybrids, electric vehicles and batteries at GM, Michael Bly, GM has never built such a sophisticated system. In his words: “We haven't done a vehicle this complex in the history of GM. The software--the control side--is what ties together (the mechanical components)...It's really the heart and soul of how the car performs."

What Our customers are saying

The lease rate I got by calling the dealer was $67 higher than the rate I got from Car Leasing Secrets. It’s all about the local competition. So happy with my Benz!

This is probably the easiest way to get quotes and compare them. I got one from each dealer in my city. One of them was surprisingly low. The quotes are free. No worries there.

What a great way to shop around! I wanted a Corolla. There’s only one Toyota dealership in my city but I got a quote for a Honda Civic and decided to go with that one because I got such a good offer.
