VIDEO: Is Volt the Future of the Electric Car?
WASHINGTON D.C. -- Action News met the Volt team in an out of the way parking lot in Washington DC. It was nothing fancy; just an RV, a course marking in orange cones and a shiny Chevy Volt with 600 miles on it. For a car that uses cutting edge technology, even called a "game changer" by some in the industry, our first impression was that it appeared very main stream. The Volt has four seats, four doors and is about the size of a Toyota Corolla. Inside you flip a gear selector to drive and go!
One of the first things you notice is how quiet it is, which analysts say is a plus about electric vehicle driving. General Motors calls the Volt an extended range electric, the first of its kind.
The dashboard looks like a Mac book, with white, shiny, plastic, computer type screens.
