The Philadelphia Inquirer has a nice article on the 2010 targeted Chevy Volt – the electric car being designed by General Motors. The reporter talks with Ed Welburn, the head of the GM design team (and who grew up in the Philadelphia area) about the latest developments. The team has been working hard to reduce the drag coefficient, which will help to extend the range of the batteries. The latest changes have added six miles to the Volt’s battery only highway range.
While I don’t think there’s been much word at all about pricing, the article points out that the Volt is expected to be “priced in a middle-class ballpark.”
“It’s a Chevy, so it has to be affordable,” GM spokesman Mike Albano said.
