General Motors is still hard at work behind the scenes on the next-generation Chevrolet Volt.
We won't know full details of the car for some time, but one upgrade it's likely to feature is a new, more efficient and less expensive power inverter.
According to Charged EVs, GM is currently developing an inverter capable of a 55kW peak and 30kW continuous output.
While not described directly for use in the Volt, the new inverter is modular and scalable, meaning it can be used in various different applications, and GM is said to be two-thirds the way through the project, expected to finish January 2016--so it should coincide with the launch of the 2016 Chevy Volt.
GM is spending $16.6 million on the project, $6 million of which has been funded by the U.S. Department of Energy.Read Article
