GM's Electric Car Called Volt

Yesterday marked a special day for GM (General Motors) where they announced to the public their first electric car called Chevrolet Volt that could get up to 230 mpg in city driving. It is the first American car to achieve the triple digit fuel economy figure compared to Toyota’s Prius that gets 51 mpg in the city and 48 mpg on the highway. The volt is powered by an electric motor and a battery pack with a 40 mile range then a small internal combustion engine will kick in to generate electricity for 300 miles of driving. Volt’s battery pack can be recharged from any home outlet at a very minimal cost (about $.40 cents a day or .05 cents per kilowatt hour as per GM CEO Fritz Henderson). The price you have to pay for Volt’s efficiency is around $40,000 compared to Toyota’s Prius which starts from $22,000. Volt was first seen at the 2007 Detroit Auto Show and will be at the showrooms by late 2010.
