CalCars.org Drives a Victory Lap in the new Chevy Volt
Posted on Wednesday February 23, 02011
After 10 years of grassroots advocacy, garage based engineering and dreams of saving the earth, Felix Kramer and Ron Gremban of Calcars.org celebrate with Dr. Andy Frank as they receive their Chevy Volts. This was a major accomplishment because it marked the end of their initial campaign at Calcars. First to prove to the Auto Industry that Plugin Hybrid Electric Vehicles were not only possible using today's readily available technology, but that the American public wanted this technology and secondly to see a major auto company mass produce a PHEV. Well the proof of all their hard work is finally now available. GM's Chevy Volt is an extended range PHEV and according to Dr. Andy Frank, his new Chevy Volt drives and operates exactly like his initial ideas 25 years ago. Congratulations to Felix, Ron and Andy and the rest of the community that has fought and striven against all odds to see this day. And here's to the next goal: Establishing a business model and best practices for the mass conversion of the millions of non electrified vehicles on America's roads today to PHEV's.
