A few hours before the Pittsburgh CIO of the Year Awards, Chevy dropped off a pair of Volts for Pittsburgh Technology Council members and local stakeholders to take on a test drive.
Did you know that several Pittsburgh tech and manufacturing companies played a role in the development and production of the Volt?
ANSYS design software refined the aerodynamics while ALCOA built the world’s lightest mass-produced aluminum 17-inch wheels. BayerMaterial Science played a role in the headlight materials, composite trunk floor and clear coat. Kennametal machined drivetrain parts and Eaton is working on building charging stations.
Goes to show you, Pittsburgh is helping to solve some pretty important problems while brining all kinds of innovation to the table. Check out this quick video detailing the test drive today!
