Whether you're eagerly anticipating the Chevy Volt, or have never heard of this electric car, now is the perfect time to get to know this potentially groundbreaking vehicle. Expected to hit the streets in 2010, the Volt could revolutionize our "green" car choices and lead to a new generation of American-made electric cars that are efficient and reliable. Powered by lithium-ion batteries, the Volt will be able to travel 40 miles without using any gas. That's more than enough for the average daily driving of most people. Recharge at work and you might be able to drive daily without using a drop of gas.
