GM may consider Chevrolet Volt SS plug-in hybrid

When the 2011 Chevrolet Volt makes its debut later next year, it will allow 40 miles of gas free driving and a “sporty” 0-60 mph time of under 9 seconds. However, if a 0-60 mph time of 9 seconds isn’t “sporty” enough for you, GM may be considering a Chevrolet Volt SS model.

In a recent interview, Vice Chairman Bob Lutz was asked whether GM was moving away from performance cars and towards fuel-efficient models. He said that “as the trend grows for vegetarianism the fruit and vegetable isles will expand but the meat counters won”t go away.” However, Lutz said that performance vehicles will still exist.

“I would forecast that certainly there will be a growing trend to high performance hybrids,” he said.

Asked if we’ll see a Chevrolet Volt SS one day, Lutz said: “I would not discount the possibility.”
