Interesting article on the development of the Volt

This almost sounds like a last ditch effort for GM... if it succeeds, they win, and win big at the expense of all other carmakers. If they fail, they fail hard.

That was an exceptional read! Thanks for posting it. I hope that "gapeing hole" noted at the very end of the aricle is filled soon though!

Well worth the read. I liked the references to Kennedy's shot for the moon. Everyone knows American get busy under pressure, and General Motors certainly is under pressure.

I really do not doubt the Volt program at all. GM does have untapped experiences in which they can draw on in the Volt's case.

But what I want to see is the passion all GM management has shown with the Volt applied to each and every last new vehicle program in it's pipeline. Throw out all the stops, all the rulebooks, all the bureaucracy, settle issues in one day ... or at least kick an impressive percentage of those hurtles away and away for good. We have recently seen how good the product from GM can be with all of that or most of that still in place, I can only imagine how great it will be with most of that gone and done away with.

I hope the Volt program teaches GM lessons in how to do things in not only in special vehicle programs, but in common programs as well.
