HOV Lane-Accessible Chevy Volt Nears Production
GM is unleashing a pair of (naturally expensive) ads for its Chevrolet Volt plug-in hybrid at Super Bowl XLVI. Just one day later, on Feb. 6, the company will finally begin building a version that could drastically increase its desirability in the state of California.
The Chevrolet Volt has not proven to be a huge seller. And GM may have already missed on thousands of sales in California by not making the original Volt meet the standards for white decal HOV lane entry in that state. The original Volt did not qualify for the lane because it didn’t meet the required emissions standards needed to classify it as an Electric Advanced Technology Partial Zero-Emissions Vehicle (e-AT-PZEV).
However, it may not have been such a "big loss" as the new "green" stickers for the California HOV lane were only available beginning in January of 2012. There are only 40,000 total stickers available.
