GM Fights to Go 'Green' with Volt Concept Car
Following in the wake of heavy criticism for abandoning the EV1 electric car, faltering auto giant General Motors Corp. has unveiled their latest offering to the clean car market, their new "Volt" concept car.
The Chevrolet Volt was introduced on Jan. 7 at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit, and is designed to obtain enough power from its next-generation battery pack to run for 40 miles. According to GM, the average American driver only travels about 40 miles a day, so the Volt can save about 500 gallons of gasoline a year.
"For most drivers, the Volt will use little or no gasoline," said GM chief engineer Nick Zielinski.
