Chevrolet Volt Concept vehicle on tour in South Florida
October 21, 2007
October 22, 2007 GM is showcasing its Chevy Volt – an emission free plug-in, electric vehicle that can be recharged by plugging it into a common 110-Volt/15-amp outlet – in a tour of venues in South Florida until October 23.
More than seventy five percent of drivers in the United States commute fewer than 40 miles a day and for these drivers, a system like the the Volt could totally eliminate the need to use gas as well as helping clean up the atmosphere. Powered by GM’s next-generation electric propulsion known as the E-flex System, the Volt can deliver 40 city miles of fully-electric commuting and takes about six hours to fully charge via a 110-volt outlet.
GM has assigned more than 200 engineers and 25 interior and exterior designers to the responsible for producing the Volt.
There is no final word yet on when the Concept vehicle will enter production – a step that's dependent on the development of lithium-ion batteries suitable for hybrid and electric vehicle applications.
