GM Plans to Release Volt by 2010
Plug-in car designed for short trips
The company’s goal is to swipe the mantle of environmental-friendliness from Toyota, and get consumers to start associating GM with green cars, not just the Hummer.
As for the details: The plug-in Volt would re-charge through a wall socket, and be designed for shorter trips. The Volt would run for about 40 miles on battery power, and have a gas-powered engine as a backup, in case you can’t make it to an outlet in time.—Gregory Mone
