Watch the Chevrolet Volt Get Assembled [Video]
Earlier this week General Motors announced the official start of production of its revolutionary Chevrolet Volt.
With an official kick-off of at the Hamtramck assembly plant where the car is built, GM has now released a video of the full assembly process to feed your inner car-geek.
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.
