Let me introduce you to the most-called phone number in America right now: 866-405-4005. This is the number that GM is giving out to customers who have questions about this morning's official announcement that GM has filed for bankruptcy protection. In a letter to customers, GM describes in a few clear words how the bankruptcy affects the company and future products, including the much-anticipated Chevy Volt. It shouldn't surprise anyone who's familiar with this car that GM says the expensive plug-in car is not going away. The "new GM" will have a number of key vehicle launches in 2009 and 2010, the letter says, including the Chevrolet Camaro, Chevy Cruze, and "the revolutionary Chevy Volt, an extended-range electric vehicle that can travel up to 40 miles on battery power alone."
You can read the letter after the jump. For more thoughts on the future of the Volt, check out the comments on this post. Thanks to Dean for the tip!
