I’m a sucker for factory tours and enjoy watching how stuff is made. GM released a video of how the Chevy Volt electric vehicle is manufactured in Detroit. Henry Ford would be proud of the mostly robotic assembly line. Any geek would enjoy the gadgetry involved in building the Volt.
This time-lapse video compresses the Chevy Volt assembly process down to under two minutes. Obviously it takes much longer for Chevy’s robots and the union guys to weld and bolt a Volt together.
The Chevy Volt is a plug-in hybrid vehicle that will run on electricity for most commuters’ entire trip. There is a gas engine that will kick in when the batteries are depleted.
