>> We just got the first look at the new Chevy Volt in its production form though still two years from production. It's the car many
say has to single handedly bring GM from behind. Now, the car is always driven by its electric motor and lithium ion batteries, but
it does have a lean-burn gas engine on board to generate more electricity. It'll go 40 miles on battery alone after that as far as you
want when the gas engine kicks in to run the generator and make more juice. You can also charge the Volt at your household outlet, do
that let's say overnight and keep your daily mileage under 40 and you'll never use gas. MPG is a big question the EPA has never rated
a car quite like this. We hear they may come back with anything from 48 to 100 miles per gallon. A lot of people were disappointed by
the production's styling, which from the front is very Malibu but when you come around the sides and to the rear of the car the look
gets much more distinctive. Inside nothing bland at all, a radical instrument pod and the center console is reminiscent of iPod
design housing a touch-screen based media system with integrated shifter, hard drive navigation and a media server will be available
and Bluetooth for both hands-free and streaming of media will be standard. Now, the pricing on the Volt's not set yet though we've been
hearing 40 grand and as I mentioned production won't start until late 2010.
