General Motors is looking to be bringing the Volt to Europe by late 2011.
This is earlier than initially reported.
GM needs to spread out as much of the high-cost of development and production of the gas/electric hybrid as possible, so multiple outlets are being considered.
Opel is working on its own plug-in hybrid vehicles, and the Volt is expected to join that lineup.
But once Opel has a strong electric presence, it is rumored that the Volt will be changed to be sold as a Chevrolet.
