It's a vision of our future. This is the Chevy Volt. Yes, it's a car, but it's so much more than that. It's a glimpse of what is to come from General Motors as we begin our second century. The Volt will change the way we drive. How? For starters, it will use electricity. And for up to the first 40 miles of driving, it will use zero gasoline and produce no emissions. For longer trips, the Volt's gas-powered range-extending engine will be used strictly to generate more electricity. As we see it, electricity is just one of many paths to the future of transportation. And the Volt is the first step toward completely reinventing the automobile.
