2011 Chevrolet Volt: What's Your Number?
June 15, 2011
Right around the time the Volt was being released, I had the opportunity to sit down with some of the engineers who produced the driver interface. I asked them if there were any Easter eggs that were hidden in the system, you know, like if you hit a certain combination of seven buttons at once, the screen will bring up a Tetris game. But no, according to them there are no hidden gems in there. What they did tell me, however, was what that green number is on the bottom of the screen.
It's the production number. We have the 340th Volt to roll off the assembly line. While it's not as cool as a game of Tetris, I thought this was an interesting tidbit.
Seriously, though, how cool would it be to have a game of Tempest hidden away? Just look at that, it's got a knob and a fire button right there!
