"volt" of confidence

General Motors is trying to ease buyers concerns about battery life by announcing it will guarantee the upcoming Chevrolet Volt's lithium-ion battery pack for 100,000 miles or a period of eight-years, whichever comes first.

In addition, GM noted that the warranty will be transferable at no cost to a new owner should a Volt buyer decide to sell his car. According to the Detroit automaker, "it's the automotive industry's longest, most comprehensive battery warranty for an electric vehicle".

The Volt's battery warranty covers all 161 battery components and that's a pretty comprehensive thing for buyers as the cost of the 400 pound battery has been estimated to be between US$8,000 to US$10,000. The car uses a small gasoline engine to produce electricity once the battery is depleted.

Perhaps the Honda CRZ and Toyota Prius should follow Chevroletís footstep in assuring the potential buyers?

I have been a car fanatic since 1989, when my father was changing our family car then to a Toyota Corolla 1.6 GL fitted with a Twin Cam 16 valve engine that was carburetor-fed, a big deal back in those days. The automobile technology and industry fascinates me and I hope to broadcast these interesting developments to everyone out there through this blog.
