JOHN VOELKER – Greener Driving
When the 2011 Chevrolet Volt and 2011 Nissan Leaf electric cars launched in December 2010, major automakers began selling plug-in cars again for the first time in 80 years. The numbers will be small at first, but plug-in vehicles will grow over the next 20 or 30 years to become a substantial portion of global production. Analyst and writer John Voelcker, who edits, explains the Volt and how it works, and discusses the energy and policy implications of such a momentous change.
