Chevrolet Volt into production in 2010
General Motors has announced at Geneva Motor Show that they set a target for production of an all-electric car in 2010. Lutz said the major uncertainty facing the Chevrolet Volt was whether lithium-ion batteries can be developed to power it. A running Volt prototype is expected by the end of 2007, he said.
"We have set an internal target of production in 2010. Whether we can make that or not, this is still kind of an unpredictable program for us," Lutz told reporters on the sidelines of the Geneva auto show.
