Chevy Volt Production Begins Today: Watch it Live [Video]


Almost four years after General Motors showed the first Chevy Volt design concept, the car will head into serial production today.

Following a long tradition of Chevy Volt press conferences, GM will hold yet another one today to launch the Volt production at the Hamtramck assembly plant where the cars will be built.

GM is streaming the event live with a pre-show starting at 9:30 AM and the official launch at 10:00 AM Eastern Time. Some new news about the Volt is rumored to be given at that time.

In case you haven't been paying attention, the Volt can drive anywhere from 25 to 50 miles on pure electricity, after which point the car's gasoline engine kicks-in to recharge the battery and keep the car going for an additional 300 miles. The car was recently given an official EPA fuel economy rating of 93-mpg in electric mode, 37-mpg in gasoline mode and a combined average of 60-mpg. GM has already upped production numbers for the car saying that by 2012 it will build 45,000 Volts per year.

The Chevy Volt was recently awarded Car of the Year by both Motor Trend and Automobile Magazine and is on the short list for the North American Car of the Year.
