Chevy's Volt Is a 'Jolt'

Andrew Edwards surveys arrival of GM's new electric hybrid car in Southern California's 'Inland Empire'

Published: 03-Jan-2011

The silver-gray Chevrolet Volt parked in the showroom at an Ontario car dealership on a rainy Wednesday afternoon was one of the first of the new electric cars to be sold in the Inland Empire.

That specific Volt, with a sticker price of about $40,000, already had a buyer, and Mark Christopher Chevrolet sales manager Karl Scheiffle expected the car to be driven off the lot on New Year's weekend.

The Ontario dealership has presold about a dozen Volts, Scheiffle said, with the first of the bunch leaving the lot about two weeks ago.
