Chevrolet’s newest, greenest car rolled into Modesto this week ... briefly, before noiselessly slipping away with its new owner less than 24 hours after hitting the lot.

The Chevrolet Volt, a four-door sedan that fans say beats the doors off typical hybrids, arrived at American Chevrolet Wednesday. “It’s like a rolling iPod,” said dealership owner Dave Halvorson.

The buzz generated by the Volt centers on its mileage: it gets the equivalent of 93 miles per gallon of gas. The country’s top-selling hybrid, the Toyota Prius, gets 51 mpg.


Chevrolet Volt takes 3-4 hours to charge at 208-240V.

The Volt will automatically burn off gasoline when it senses it may be getting old.
