Chevy dealers in Texas will get 4-5 units in latter half of the year.

The first Chevrolet Volts have yet to arrive at dealerships in the Houston area, but already there seems to be demand for the electric vehicles.

Late last year, the Volt was launched in seven U.S. markets, including Austin, which received 20 of the electric autos. All were reserved by buyers, GM spokesman Craig Eppling said, so they spent almost no time on the lot before being driven away.

By late February or early March, a few Volts will arrive at Houston dealerships. The number of Volts each dealer will receive will depend on its size and sales, Eppling said.
