I'm sure many of you have already heard about the Volt, Chevy's stab at an electric car. In case you didn't, here's some info:
The Concept Chevy Volt, with its revolutionary E-Flex Propulsion System, will be different than any previous electric vehicle because it will use a lithium-ion battery with a variety of range-extending onboard power sources, including gas and, in some vehicles, E85 ethanol to recharge the battery while driving.
When it comes to plugging in, the Volt will be designed to use a common 110-volt household plug. For someone who drives less than 40 miles a day, Chevy Volt will use zero gasoline and produce zero emissions. For longer trips, Chevy Volt's range-extending power source kicks in to recharge the lithium-ion battery pack as required.
Pretty promising right? I thought so. And the concept design (above) was amazingly not the shittiest thing I've ever seen in my life. So what did Chevy change for the actual production model? Everything cool.
Hit the jump to see photos of the Volt that will actually hit the market for 2011, along with two creeps that had something to do with it.
POLL: If both the guys in the following pictures were dressed as Santa and your mom took you to the mall to get your picture taken with him, whose lap would you rather sit on? I'm going with Mr. Mustache.
