GM earmarks key 'trend-setting' markets for Volt
Vice Chairman Bob Lutz revealed to the Detroit Free Press that current plans will see distribution of the Volt begin with California, followed by Washington D.C., Florida, New York and elsewhere on the East Coast. "Of course, that's only current thinking, and the plans could change" Lutz said.
Some have doubted either GM’s willingness or ability to bring the Volt to market in a timely fashion, and at times it looked like the skeptics could be right. However, engineers have finalized the design of the car, which you can catch a sneak preview of by clicking here, and are now ready to start real-world testing of the car’s new drivetrain.
Still, the Volt is still more than two years away and as Lutz points out a lot of things could change in that time.
