Chevrolet Volt Concept

GM unveiled the new Chevrolet Volt Concept at the Detroit Auto Show, which is the company’s latest electric concept car. “If you lived within 30 miles from work (60 miles round trip) and charged your vehicle every night when you came home or during the day at work, you would get 150 miles per gallon,” Lutz said. “More than half of all Americans live within 20 miles of where they work (40 miles round trip). In that case, you might never burn a drop of gas during the life of the car.”

The Chevrolet Volt Concept is a plug-in hybrid that has a charge time of 6.5 hourse offering 40 miles on battery alone and has a 640 mile range with a full tank of gasoline. The car has a top speed of 120 mph and does 0-60 mph in 8.5 seconds.
