My first thought was arrogant sneeze, too: "At that pace, they will catch up with Model S in 48 years!". But in fact it is great news for all EVs becausethe storage capacity of the Volt battery will increase slightly from 16 kWh of energy to 16.5 kWh, and engineers have expanded the state-of-charge window to 10.8 kWh from 10.3 kWh in the 2012 model
- GM sells a hybrid and customers just want more all-electric range.
- EVs do evolve, at little pace but without incurring additional cost.
- if Tesla expands its 265 mile EPA range model to cover 288 miles without additional cost in the next model year, cheering would be loud over here!
