Concept Plug-in Hybrid, the Chevy Volt

This is GM’s plug-in hybrid concept with amazing stats: 40 miles on electricity alone (640 w/gas), can burn ethanol or gasoline, and charges in 6 hours from plugs on either side of the car. This is the kind of car the environment needs. Short commute? You’ll never need gas. Production model by 2010 or so. This link has 25+ high-resolution pictures of the Volt. 2010 is a long way off!
