Sweet electric car!


Wow, Chevy's new Volt electric car, coming out as a 2010 model (so I guess next summer or fall), looks fantastic!

Check out the site: http://www.chevrolet.com/electriccar/

The video is really clever and fun to watch.

The car itself looks really nice, which is such a refreshing change.  I am tired of the ugly designs chosen by the Japanese automakers for their electric cars.  Why do they have to make electric cars ugly?  To hold back demand?

The Volt is designed to plug into a regular household outlet (nice!) and will go for 40 miles without a drop of gas.

The web link above has more info — check it out!

Actually, the car will be out late 2010, not 2009.

Nice !

I'm guessing after 40 miles the gas kicks in to recharge the battery? Then after charging, it goes back to battery? And so on...?

That's normally how they work, so I'd say yes. I love that it finally appears to be reasonable to get a nice car that does not need gasoline. Progress!

Take this with a grain of sand i do not know it it's true or not. I heard this Volt will not be available in the USA
