When will we see a working Chevy Volt?


At the Chicago Auto Show I asked the woman introducing the Volt if it had a real drive-train, and yes, the Volt on display is a working model! And, there’s another as well! So, there are two completely finished Volt prototypes!

Up until now GM had a working drive-train, but they were only testing it in makeshift car bodies borrowed from other models - "mules". Now, they've assembled the whole thing, with all of the unique, electric accessories that were designed for maximum efficiency.

A milestone.
