GM Hoping Drivers Get A Big Charge From Volt
Imagine a stylish economy car that seats two adults and three children, has a top speed of 150 miles an hour, but runs on batteries that can be charged en route by a generator that uses a variety of fuels, including hydrogen.
General Motors will unveil such a car today at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit. Though production is still several years away, the automaker will announce plans for the Chevy Volt, a car that will have a cruising range of up to 640 miles on 12 gallons of fuel, or a range of about 40 miles running solely on a lithium-ion battery pack.
General Motors plans to unveil its plug-in electric hybrid car, the Chevy Volt, today in Detroit, though production is several years away.
The batteries can be recharged with an onboard generator – or by being plugged into a standard household outlet.
