Detroit 2011: Chevy Volt Wins North American Car of the Year, No One Surprised


To the surprise of absolutely no one, the Chevrolet Volt was awarded the 2011 North American Car of the Year.

"It's a great honor to be recognized as the North American Car of the Year," said GM CEO Dan Akerson after being handed the award at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit. "Since development began, we believed the Volt had the potential to transform the automotive industry. Today, the Volt is the first electric vehicle to win the prestigious North American Car of the Year award, and the first vehicle ever to receive the industry's highest automotive, technology, and environmental recognitions."

Apart for the Volt's quantum leap in extended drive technology, it represents the new General Motors, recently emerged from bankruptcy and ready to take on the world's finest yet again.

An American take on the electric car, the Volt delivers electric power for 25 to 50 miles, after which the gasoline engine kicks in to charge the lithium-ion battery pack an enable an additional 300 miles.

The announcement also follows on the heels of the Nissan Leaf (one of the other finalists for the 2011 North American Car of the Year award) being named European Car of the Year.

North American automotive publications have lauded the Volt, with the car recently winning the Motor Trend 2011 Car of the Year, as well as a very long list of other accolades from Popular Science, Car and Driver, Ward's AutoWorld and the Green Car Journal (2011 Green Car of the Year).

Once again, congratulations to the Volt.

I won`t be surprised if the Volt gets anymore awards with upcoming auto shows.

Now us tax payers are finally seeing something good being done with our dollars that was dumped into GM. Keep it up GM!
