Video: Chevrolet shows the electric range the Volt is capable of

.

After months of seemingly endless videos of the Chevrolet Volt undergoing one test after another, Chevy finally - and mercifully - decided to bring it out of the production line and into the streets, although the Bowtie still couldn’t resist throwing a number of plugs for their electric car along the way.

In any case, with electric cars slowly infiltrating the market, Chevrolet wants to make the public aware that their electric car can just as easily walk the walk as it could talk the talk. Highlighting the Volt’s real-world electronic range, the video shows how far you can go on your Volt on a single fully-charged battery, without even using a drop of fuel in the process. It also talks about scenarios when the Volt’s battery runs out and the car’s range-extending gas generator kicks in, giving the Volt the extra mileage covered other EV cars can’t boast of.

While it’s good to know all these things, we’re taking Chevrolet’s proclamations with a grain of salt. For now, at least; until we see the real deal in action, we’ll be holding off on making rash judgments.

Kirby’s first exposure into the world of automobiles happened when he caught Knight Rider on television as a five-year old boy. David Hasselhoff didn’t leave much of an impression on him (that happened later on in Baywatch), but KITT certainly did. To this day, Kirby remains convinced that he will one day own a car with the same ‘spirit’ as the original KITT (not the 2008 monstrosity). He doesn't know when that will be, but until then, he’s committed to expressing his love for KITT, and all cars for that matter, here at TopSpeed.  Read More
