Volt plugged in
After years of preparation and a significant amount of hype, the Chevy Volt is being manufactured and will be shipped to customers in November, its target date. Even though the Volt is often touted as the car that will reinvent General Motors, the volume of sales--and financial impact--will be relatively small for at least the first few years.
In my short drive, I can say that it was very fun to drive, had good acceleration, although it felt a bit heavier when turning than other EVs I drove that day. Mileage for the Volt will vary greatly depending on whether the driving taps the gasoline engine, with mileage ranging from the mid- to high 30s to over 100 miles per gallon, a GM Volt executive said.
