2011 Chevy Volt endorsed by the government?

Today's video discusses how General Motors bred its soon to be released electric hybrid vehicle in Washington, D.C.'s, backyard in the wake of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009.

By now I'm pretty certain that most of you out there are aware of the potential ecological and economical benefits of driving an electric or hybrid car that isn't totally reliant on fossil fuels. Not surprisingly, the U.S. government is getting behind the cause as well, influenced in part by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA). The ARRA is the official term for the economic stimulus package passed by Congress in early 2009 to help create jobs and promote investment in American enterprises during the current recession. And when it comes to the conception and push of an upcoming release of a potentially revolutionary American electric hybrid vehicle--the 2011 Chevy Volt--the correlation begins to make a lot of sense both for American auto workers and consumers.

Today's video discusses the advent of plug-in vehicle stations necessitated by vehicles like the Volt and GM's desire to create a money-saving, potentially emissions-free automobile for the American public and become a worldwide leader in electric engine vehicle production. Without a doubt, it's an exciting time for General Motors and perhaps an equally exciting time for the car-buying public as we head into a hopefully more prosperous and ecological future.
