The Chevy Volt will see how far away home is and adjust the engine

At yesterday’s unveiling of the Chevrolet Volt, Bob Lutz announced what it seems to be one of the coolest features of the new plug-in hybrid. According to GM’s Vice Chairman, the Volt will use the GPS to figure out how far away home is and and it will adjust the system to only run the gas engine long enough to give you enough charge to get you home where you can actually plug it into the wall outlet. You’ve got to admit, that’s awesome and if GM manages to make this system efficient, it will definitely kick ass.
