General Motors has just committed fully to producing the electric Chevy Volt and to have it on the road by 2010. By approving production funding for the plug-in hybrid, GM’s CEO Rick Wagoner gives the official go-ahead to take the eco-friendly car out of the concept phase and into reality.
The above picture is an earlier version of the Volt design, and it didn't perform too well in the wind tunnels, so look for a redesigned version to see the light of day soon with some more aerodynamic curves. There's no word on where this will fall in the price spectrum, but one hopes that it'll be affordable to regular people and not just a niche product. But hey, it's awesome that we'll see this thing in the showroom in a mere two years.
