Chevrolet Volt details:

The Chevrolet Volt can be the only vehicle you own, explained Mark Reuss, president, GM North America. The Chevrolet Volt provides it all: a revolutionary propulsion system, progressive look-and-feel, industry-leading security, luxury amenities and user-friendly technologies, and spirited driving dynamics.

Developed, engineered, built and provided to buyers in 29 months, the Chevy Chevrolet Volt will go on sale at Chevrolet dealers before the end of 2010. It is provided in one very well-equipped traditional trim level, along with two feature packages: a Luxury Trim Suite and a Back Camera and Park Assist Suite.

The Chevrolet Volt is not a hybrid. It is a one-of-a-kind, all-electrically driven car developed and engineered to operate in all climates. Powered by Gm's revolutionary Chevrolet Voltec propulsion system, it consists of a 16-kwh lithium-ion battery pack and electric drive unit that offer pure electric range between 25 and 50 miles, depending on terrain, driving techniques and temperature. A 1. 4L gasoline-powered motor extends the range up to an add-on 310 miles on a full tank of fuel by operating the vehicle's electric drive system until the vehicle can be plugged in and recharged or refueled. This distinguishes the Chevrolet Volt from electric-only cars, which cannot be operated when recharging is not immediately available - such as during a performance interruption or on a long-distance trip.
