Chevy Volt Will Be Limited

Chevy VoltLeft Lane News had some questions for Larry Burns, Vice President of GM's R&D and Planning, on the Chevy Volt Plug-In Hybrid Vehicle (excuse me, Extended Range Electric Vehicle according to GM) timetable.

According to Burns, the Chevy Volt will be released in 2010, even though it's a 'challenge.' But Burns expects only 10,000 Volts to be available that first year. Also, only five cities will sell the new Volt (let me guess, three of those five will be in California?).

According to Burns, the five cities will have trained technicians and parts who can service the vehicle.

In Europe, don't expect to see the Opel Flextreme, i.e. the Opel variant of the Volt, until 2013. GM is only rushing to get it done in the U.S.

Burns feels the development of the Volt hinges on the lithium ion batteries. He's hopeful, however, the Volt will start the process as the first generation. But later generations will be much more capable.

Either way, the cost will still be upwards of $35,000.

So there you go. Any little info about the Volt will be talked about.
