The World's First Plug-In Hybrid!
Coined as a plug-in series hybrid vehicle it is being introduced under the General Motors Chevrolet Brand.
The Volt's propulsion system will be based on GM's new E-Flex platform which was derived from the General Motors advanced technology vehicles; GM AUTOnomy, the GM Hy-Wire and the Chevrolet Sequel. With the Volt being the first step in reinventing the automobile.
As GM is the first to create this technology other car manufacturers like Mercedes, Nissan, BMW, Honda, and Ford are becoming fast followers of this technology. With more cars like this getting 100 miles per gallon and more (GM Estimates 240 MPG) the world of transportation will be changing fast.
GM has also expanded this revolutionary platform with the Cadillac Converj concept, the Opel Ampera Concept and the Vauxhaul Ampera Concept.
