Chevrolet Volt Webchat Reveals Interesting Tidbits, No Pricing Announced


A live webchat with GM's Tony Disalle, who is responsible for marketing the Chevrolet Volt, was held this afternoon at which Disalle discussed some new information regarding the Volt.

The biggest announcement, revealed earlier by GM head honcho Ed Whitacre, was that GM is expanding the launch areas to the Austin, Texas and New York metro area, with rollouts in Texas and the New York/New Jersey/Connecticut tri-state area to follow in early 2011. Despite the limited rollout, Disalle is mandating that dealers outside the rollout area be able to service the Volt, as a means of instilling confidence in consumers ability to drive the Volt long distances. Dealers will also have to stock a demonstrator unit and install a 240 volt plug to charge the car, though consumers will not be required to have one installed as a condition for buying the car (unlike the Nissan Leaf).

GM will produce 10,000 Volts in its first year, with production rising to 30,000 units in 2012. Volt owners will also have a free subscription to OnStar, and a "unique owner site" that will "talk to the car". Disalle didn't elaborate too much on the site, but he did mention that "The car will tell it [the site] the battery state of charge, and number of miles driven".

Pricing has not been announced at this time.
