Organized by Dr. Lyle Dennis (pictured above on the left), creator of the popular GM-Volt fan website, the group of about 300 souls converged on the Jacob Javitz Center for an event that, for probably the first time, brought car company officials and consumers together to ask questions of each other. Our favorite GM exec, Bob Lutz, was on hand as was design chief, Frank Weber.
So what was learned about the upcoming Volt? From scouring the posts of attendees we hear that the battery should begin life with a 50 mile range, that's 10 miles more than originaly thought and it can be plugged into regular 110V outlet or 220V. It is being designed as a "global" vehicle so it could sport either right hand and left hand drive and will comply with emissions regulations world-wide.
