Chevy Dealers Readying for Volt Electric Car Launch
NAW, Mich. -- The long-awaited Chevrolet Volt electric car is expected to reach showroom floors by the end of this year and local dealers are ready for sales to be hot.
The Volt can be charged in a conventional outlet and is designed to drive up to 40 miles on electricity. When its lithium-ion battery runs low, an engine kicks in to extend its driving range to more than 300 miles without refueling.
GM's combined Volt-related investment in Michigan totals $700 million at eight facilities, including new engine plant at Flint Engine South that will build engines for the Volt.
