Why is it no surprise that General Motors has entered something with Volt in the name? Designed for the 2025 revival of the Los Angeles Grand Prix, the Chaparral Volt uses extended-range electric vehicle technology that seems inspired by that great funk band of the 1970s Earth, Wind & Fire. GM reasons that each of those is abundant in California. Earth-wise, gravity and momentum-capture regeneration provide highly efficient braking. Rear turbine extractors cool power cells and provide aerodynamic force, which covers the wind section. And the suns fire becomes solar energy for the Chaparral Volts primary kinetic force.
