LORDSTOWN — Is the General Motors Corp. Lordstown Complex in line to create some sparks with a Volt?

The complex is said to be the leading contender to build GM’s futuristic Chevrolet Volt plug-in hybrid car, according to a report Monday in industry publication Automotive News.

The story said GM wants to build the small car in the United States, according to a source close to the project.


The Maranello4 is manufactured by the EFFIDI Automotive Group, and marketed in the UK by London based Sakura Battery Company.
