The front-wheel-drive, four-passenger Volt sedan is about 14 inches shorter than the Malibu. It is priced at $41,000, although a tax credit of up to $7,500 is available. Chevy says it can cover "up to 40 miles" using an electric motor and batteries. GM calls the Volt an "extended range electric vehicle" but an argument can be made it is a hybrid since it "extends" that range using a gasoline engine as a generator to provide electricity. It is assembled in Detroit and goes on sale late this year with a staggered, national debut.
