General Motors Chairman Rick Wagoner and Vice Chairman Robert Lutz revealed the Chevy Volt Concept at the Detroit Auto Show this afternoon. The Volt, as we revealed earlier, is an electric car with range extension capability thanks to an onboard internal combustion engine that acts as a generator for the batteries, which gives the Volt a range up to 640 miles. We don't want to steal AutoblogGreen's thunder, so you can check out their full coverage of the unveiling and a high-res photo gallery of live shots taken during the reveal.

      GM has a website where they are taking a survey to decide whether to produce the vote. The website is:


      Please cast your vote.

      Why re-direct me? For your own profit, not my convenience. I don't click on pop-ups, and I'm not going to click on this.

      Don't post if you aren't going to report.

      I think series hybrids are a good idea. You can run the internal combustion engine at its most efficient load and RPM configuration, and you don't need a complex engine (variable valve timing, etc.) since it only needs to run well in a narrow operating range, it can be highly optimized for economy and emissions.)

      It would be nice to see GM at least start putting hybrid powertrains like these in cars that people can actually buy. Sadly, it seems like they prefer to spend their money on lobbyists to keep CAFE standards low.

      Looks like a cross between a Smart ForFour and a Cadillac STS.

      Found a great site that provides in depth details on the Volt

      With the straight edge lines of this car it could easily be a Cadillac model.

      I'm glad Lutz has found a way to earn the millions they pay him -- as a white-haired Vanna White. he sure hasn't earned what they've paid him up to now.

      Ugly! It looks out of proportion. It's very bottom heavy and looks like you'd bump your head getting in and out.

      If they would just but a small diesel in it - they would have it!

      Small BioDiesel APU, combined with a Full Plug-In Series Hybrid with all electric drive is the way to go for the next few decades until Hydrogen fuel stations are available.

      If everyone drove a car like the Volt (with the BioDiesel APU) we would not need to import a single drop of foreign oil.
