2011 Chevy Volt - Click above for high-res image gallery

Earlier this month, General Motors CEO Fritz Henderson announced that the automaker would begin working with eBay to sell new vehicles. That revelation apparently got people wondering about the Chevy Volt and if the eBay partnership apply to the upcoming eco-friendly flagship? If so, could The General use eBay to sell the first few Volts at much higher transaction prices than what will be offered at your local Chevy dealership?

Apparently, the answer to all of those questions is yes. In an interview with GM-Volt.com, Chevrolet Brand Manager Ed Peper suggested the automaker may indeed try selling new Volts on eBay, possibly at a profit. Speaking specifically of the electric vehicle, Peper said, "We actually have been thinking about that same application to be able to do that, it's something that's definitely crossed our mind," he said. "You could even have an auction on the vehicles. We use this already with certified used vehicles and its actually worked out very well. Dealers use it a lot."

There you have it. Now, who wants to take bets on how much GM could get for the very first Chevy Volt down the assembly line?
