Recently, Chevrolet announced the most revolutionary car that it will ever send to your local Chevy dealership: the new Chevy Volt.
Chevrolet promises that the Volt is going to be like no other car at your Chevy dealership. It will be a battery-powered compact hybrid car, and it is scheduled for release by the end of the 2010 model year.
People are excited about this announcement. Already, more than 40,000 people have signed up for an unofficial waiting list, saying that they want to buy the GM Volt. Some local Chevrolet dealers are also keeping their own lists of people who can’t wait to get behind the wheel of this revolutionary vehicle.
General Motors hopes that the Volt will become a signature product, clearly identifying GM as a cutting-edge company when it comes to fuel efficiency. The Volt will rely on lithium ion battery technology, which is the same sort of battery that is used today in portable devices such as laptop computers.
It is expected that the Volt can travel 40 miles on electricity alone, assumign the battery pack is fully charged. On certain trips, it may be able to go more than 100 miles withouth the gasoline battery kicking in.
The Volt, most importantly, demonstrates General Motor’s commitment to fuel effeciency and to the environment.
