Exactly this can also be calculated. If the models of the engine are complete, then it is relatively easy to put it in any existing vehicle simulation. You'd be surprised at how exact the models can become.

The engine(generator) in the Volt is a modified Ecotec engine that was developed for use in conventional cars.

Exactly this will be the benefit over the Volt. However the ECU of the Volt limits the range this engine operates in anyway. The exact numbers I forgot, will try and find them in my notes again.
