The Chevy Volt will have to meet all crash-test regulations when it goes on sale in 2011, so it will undoubtedly have all the usual airbags, stability controls and crumple zones we expect in a modern car. Some wonder whether you can drive the Chevy Volt in the rain. Well, unless you plan on using it as a submarine, the Volt should be just fine when it gets wet. Some wonder whether the electromagnetic field (EMF) generated by an electric car will interfere with pacemakers or cause other harm. The chances of this are extremely low since the electrical components are all shielded, and there is no study that shows a direct correlation between EMF and health problems. All told, a Chevy Volt should be as safe as any other car.
