GM: Volt plus EEStor could work ... if EESU worked

There are 16 days left in the month of December. Besides being time for most Americans to kick their Christmas shopping sessions into high gear and start planning their resolutions for 2010, it also means that there's precious little time for EEStor to "deliver functional technology" to Zenn Motors as promised.
Still, the promises held out by the secretive company are too great for us to forget about entirely. We'd love for EEStor's claims to be independently verified and proven accurate, as would just about anyone else looking to break free of petroleum in favor of electric vehicles, and that includes those waiting patiently for General Motors to put the Chevy Volt on the market.
This raises an interesting question: Could General Motors install EEStor's energy storage unit in the Volt? According to Volt vehicle line chief Tony Posawatz, it could happen, though "it would take couple of years." We certainly hope you're not holding your breath.
