More Bad News for The Volt.

Posted in cars on November 12th, 2011 by admin

Earlier this year, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) did what they do and crash tested a Chevrolet Volt.  One particular test simulated a 20 mile-per-hour, side-impact collision which resulted in the Volt received an impressive five-star crash safety rating.

At the conclusion of the test, the ERV was shunned to the NHTSA bone yard to rot away with the other victims of the crash test.  But that is not where this story ends – after three weeks of sitting, the Volt caught fire.  It is suspected that the crash test punctured the Volt’s lithium-ion battery which somehow resulted in a fire.

According to a GM spokesman, this is the only crash tested Volt to catch fire and further research is being done to determine if this was a fluke or a design flaw.
