Production Chevrolet Volt Unveiled
After years of development, the production version of the 2011 Chevrolet Volt was recently unveiled by General Motors. The vehicle should arrive in dealer showrooms in late 2010, and will likely have a pricetag in the $25-$35K range.
There are a host of technological and production hurdles that remain before the Volt can see the light of day, but its clear that GM has been making steady progress towards making the Volt a reality.
GM may have killed off the EV-1 electric car years ago, but it seems determined to compete with Toyota for bragging rights as the technological leader in the development of next generation, energy efficient passenger vehicles. Time will tell if the Volt lives up to the hype, but the dogged determination GM has shown in getting the vehicle to market is praiseworthy.
What do you think? Will the Volt help GM emerge as a leader in 21st century vehicle technology, or will it remain an also-ran to the likes of Toyota and Honda?
