Reporter drives the Chevy Volt (almost)

WWJ radio's Jeff Gilbert posts a video of his test drive in a Chevy Volt mule.

In its PR efforts around the Chevy Volt, GM is doing something unprecedented, letting journalists get a sneak peak at how the power train drives in a test mule, absent the actual car in which it will be deployed. One of these lucky journalists, Jeff Gilbert of WWJ radio, made a video of his test drive. The test mule uses the Chevy Cruze, a new model, as a platform for the Voltec power train. The video lacks specifics about how the car drives, except that Gilbert says he loves it. There are interviews with GM personnel, good information about how production is proceeding, and driving footage.
