Chevrolet Volt Concept Poughkeepsie NY

Concept cars are supposed to give consumers a 3-D vision of the future. By design and intent, they are a tease, a way to keep people interested in a brand or model. When a concept car tries to give buyers a reason to change their view of a company, then this automotive design exercise is elevated to a higher art form.

The Chevrolet Volt Concept, unveiled at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit at the beginning of 2007 (after months of well-traveled Internet rumors), could be labeled one of the best of the genre. The Volt is small, but sporty, with room for four adults and even some trunk space. The sophisticated hybrid features a small engine that charges its high-tech batteries, allowing the Volt to run up to 40 miles in all-electric mode but giving it a total range comparable to a gasoline car. Chevrolet claims the fuel economy numbers (which involve more than a little complicated alternative fuel math"more on that later) are 100 mpg or better. And, if produced, it could be plugged in at home to augment the engine's battery recharging efforts.

Presented as a future model with a planned 2010 introduction, the Chevrolet Volt Concept is an example of General Motors' advanced technology acumen and is the poster child for the new, environmental direction of the company.
