TROY, Mich. — Ever seen a car come apart really fast? Check out our time-lapse video of the Chevy Volt teardown we did several weeks ago here.
It took three days, but the video shortens it to a few crazy minutes and makes Munro & Associates Al Steier look like he's working on barrels of coffee!
I captured some of the sights and sounds during those three days in a series of earlier posts. If you can make Design West in late March, by all means come because that's where Al, John Scott-Thomas of TechInsights and I will present our findings from the teardown. Steier and Scott-Thomas will give you a deep dive into the power electronics, safety and navigation systems, the huge 360V battery pack and more from what turns out to be a fantastically engineered vehicle. We'll present these findings over three days, March 27-29, in San Jose. (Click here to register for Design West).
And for now, see how three days of disassembly looks in four minutes 56 seconds.
