'Vette Dude This means it really is on its way. Some "friends" of mine still thought the VOLT was vaporware. They said the mules were fake. Now there is proof that the VOLT isn't vaporware. Long live GM!

First Chevy Volt Pre-Production Model Hits the Road

General Motors may still be in bankruptcy protection but that doesn't mean work at America's largest automaker has stopped. In fact, engineers have been hard at it, especially those working on the upcoming Chevrolet Volt.

Today Chevy has released a few photos of a pre-production model of the Volt. Until now, every other version was either a show car or a test mule and not an actual representation of what the Volt will look like - or be like for that matter.

The pictures show top Volt engineer Andrew Farah testing the car in a real world scenario and then plugging it back in to charge the battery pack. The Volt uses state-of-the-art lithium-ion batteries and if the car makes it to market soon enough, it will be the first mass-market vehicle to do so with lithium-ion power.

The Volt is a PHEV (a plug in hybrid electric vehicle). It is a full hybrid that can operate on gasoline, electric power or a combination of both and will be able to travel as many as 40 miles on pure electric power before the gasoline engine needs to kick in.
