Gms Grand Chevy Volt Plans

By: Anthony Fontanelle

Who has not heard about the Chevrolet Volt? If you have not, then the Chevrolet Volt is a creation of General Motors and it has been built as a plug-in hybrid concept vehicle. It is an electric vehicle and so it can run on pure electricity and would not have any emission.

At present, General Motors has disclosed that they are currently working on a plan so as to shove the Chevrolet Volt right from being a concept vehicle to a working and sellable production car. Jon Lauckner, the company's vice president of the global program management team, had disclosed that they are also working on having the Congress give a go signal on tax incentives. If that becomes successful, it would mean that the demand for the Chevrolet Volt and its high performance could go skyrocketing upwards.

One of the hurdles that the company has to encounter with the production of the Chevrolet Volt is that the vehicle needs to have a quality battery unit. However, development of batteries could be quite expensive and so would be the production of such batteries. If there would be a great demand for the vehicle, the company would be looking at lowering the value printed on the vehicle's price tag.

Lauckner also disclosed at an energy forum, "As volume scales up, you will move down this curve to see better economics going forward. You can't get hung up on the economics of the first unit or the tenth unit." He also continued to share that the company is already looking at having the production of the Chevrolet Volt start as soon as possible and they are targeting the end of the year 2010 as the start date. That way, the official disclosed, they would be able to prepare well so as to be able to roll out best quality units.

Despite the high price tag that could come with the Chevrolet Volt, analysts from the industry have said that the vehicle would still fare well in the market. See, consumers are constantly bombarded with messages about how emissions let our health decline and how we are trying to save our planet from climate change. And with the Chevrolet Volt available in the market in the near future, consumers would be flocking to Chevrolet dealerships so as to be able to own a unit of the exemplary and earth-friendly vehicle.
