GM Reports Volt EREV Achieving Range Goals
OIT --Real-world tests show that General Motors Co.'s rechargeable electric car can travel 40 miles on battery power as promised, company engineers said Monday.
Engineers are testing six Volts that recently were made on a Detroit assembly line, driving them at the company's proving ground and on roads around Detroit.
The automaker still has a "few things to tweak" with the car, including computer software and controls, but the Volt is on schedule for full production in November, said Andrew Farah, the car's chief engineer.
The Volt, which has a 1.4-liter gas engine that kicks on when the batteries are depleted, is due in showrooms in December.
