Chevy Volt Owners Will Be Able To Interact With Their Car Via iPhone, Blackberry

By Chris Scott Barr

Next year those people anxiously awaiting the new Chevy Volt will finally get their hands on it (barring any delays). In addition to having an awesome electric car, they’ll also have a cool way to interact with it remotely. That’s right, iPhone and Blackberry users will have the ability to link up with their car using their phone of choice.

So far it seems that the only current features will be controlling when the Volt is charged, and being able to tell just how much juice it has at any given time. Seeing that they still have a long time before the car is due out (currently late 2010), we should hopefully see more features added to the phone apps.

    It's a Chevy, so their Blackberry better include an app for the nearest mechanic.

    How about looking at the gages on the dashboard?

    To do what? Believe it or not electric cars require a fraction of the maintenance that regular ones do. In fact that's part of the reason GM pulled the EV1 project. They realized they were going to lose a fortune on parts and maintenance among other things. Check out the video: “Who killed the electric car”, it will open your eyes wider than ever before.
