FFV/Electric Volt to Offer Smart Charging

voltThis summer, General Motors (GM) will begin testing prototypes of their electric flexible fuel Chevrolet Volt. The company is in discussions on its outreach efforts for the 2011 vehicle on how it will be attractive to buyers.

One of the attractions of the vehicle will allow the consumer to charge the Volt any time through their OnStar communication system.

“We will have a customer-selectable car-charging feature at a minimum,” Vehicle line director of the Volt, Tony Posawatz said. “We don’t have to put in smart meters to get those kinds of features and accommodations.”
