General Motors announced today that the first pre-production Chevrolet Volt rolled off the company’s assembly line in Detroit Hamtramck Assembly Plant.
“These pre-production versions of the Volt will not be sold at dealerships, but will be used to assure all steps in the production system will meet the quality targets set by the Volt engineering team,” GM said in a statement.
“We have a very experienced workforce at this plant and through all of their preparation and training workers here have been given the privilege to take GM into the future with this car,” said Detroit-Hamtramck plant manager Teri Quigley.
GM said that assembly line workers will build more pre-production Volts in the coming months. The pre-production models will examined by manufacturing engineers as the plant prepares to build retail models later this year.
