China's previous experiences with the Chevrolet Volt has been limited to peeking at concepts and prodding non-drivable versions, but that's all about to come to an end. General Motors has just delivered two drivable Chevy Volts to the Shanghai Expo Bureau in China. The extended range plug-in vehicles arrived just in time for the World Expo 2010 and will shuttle VIP guests to and from Shanghai's Expo Park.
General Motors firmly believes that China will be one of the hottest markets outside the U.S. for its upcoming Volt. Chasing sales, GM has selected China as one of the initial markets outside of the U.S. that will receive the Volt prior to its widespread release. The Volt should hit select Chinese dealerships next year and will be available with GM's advanced OnStar in-vehicle safety, security and communication service there.
