DETROIT -- In talking with Tom Read in Product Communications, he says this concept
car is totally electric. It has a 40-mile range with a lithium-ion battery pack. This reflects GM's commitment to becoming a global leader in alternative propulsion systems.

You can plug it in to a 110-volt outlet for six hours, giving it a range of 640 miles. It has an engine powered electric motor with a generator that generates electricity. It takes about six and a half hours to charge the battery. The motor can run on gasoline, ethanol, bio-diesel or a hydrogen fuel cell. The motor produces 121 kilowatts of power.

Some added features include the ability to hold four or five passengers. It also has driver and front passenger air bags. The Volt was designed for passengers that drive 40 miles or less to work everyday. The exterior styling is very sharp and its being engineered for production intent.

Some experts predict it could be production ready by 2010 to 2012. The only setback is the cost of a battery. GM is looking to find a lower cost battery so they can begin mass producing cars like this one.
