Concept: Chevy Volt
High-Volt-age is more like it. This concept car has everything — an attention to styling, a variable eco-friendly propulsion platform, StabiliTrak and room for four. I want one! Only a concept at this time, how long will it be before we see something like this on the road from Chevrolet? Hopefully not long, based on the response it garnered from the crowd at the North American International Auto Show. Featuring GM‘s debut of its E-Flex Propulsion System, the electric car features a rechargeable electric drive system and range-extending power source allowing it to be configured to run on electricity, gasoline, E85 or biodiesel. Did I mention that I want one?
Reporter’s Notes: We must be making quite an impression on the large automakers with our content here on The Next Gear. So much so that GM invited us for an all expense paid trip to Detroit to cover the North American International Auto Show. While there, they wined and dined us and gave us unprecedented access to designers, high level corporate bigwigs and company spokespeople, yet with no requirement that we publish anything about them, only that we disclose this enticement. It was an opportunity we are happy to share with you, our audience. I encourage you to leave your feedback!
