Yesterday I went over some of the basics of the hybrid plug-in Chevy Volt, using words to paint the pictures. Well, here are some pictures to match the words. After you view these images, feel free to re-read yesterday's opus with a more complete picture-worth-1,000-words understanding.
Instead of the guessing game that is the usual gas gauge, Volt tells you exactly how many miles you can drive on the remaining fuel life (if you're on the battery, you get the total battery+gas driving range). The speedometer is numerical, not an inexact needle wavering over a dial. That green sphere on the right – it's actually three leaves arranged in a circle – is an efficiency meter to help you drive as power-efficiently as possible, although I'm not sure how other than maintaining constant speed. When the leaves are spinning, you are driving most efficiently.
