Plastics Help Volt Hit New Target

from Plastics News

The Chevrolet Volt, General Motors Co.'s hybrid electric car, has gotten a makeover. The 2016 Volt, unveiled at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit in January, features a sportier exterior design — GM calls it "muscular" — and an emphasis on aerodynamics. Notably, the new design also incorporates active grille shutters, which open and close automatically to manage airflow into the engine compartment. Active grille shutters are typically made with glass-reinforced nylon veins, and housings of glass-reinforced polypropylene. GM did not disclose the specific material it uses in the Volt's shutters. more
