The Chevrolet Volt concept was revealed at the 2007 North American International Auto Show in Detroit.

The Chevrolet Volt is a hybrid concept powered by both electric and petrol powerplants.

The Chevy Volt was the first concept to use GM's E-Flex hybrid platform
The front wheels of the Volt concept are turned by a 161 horsepower electric motor with electricity supplied by a lithium-ion storage pack mounted in down the center of the car. To charge the battery pack a 71 horsepower, 1.0 litre, 3 cylinder engine sits under the hood. Or the concept can be plugged into the mains. A full charge, which takes around six hours, will give the Volt roughly 40 miles of travel, after this the engine will fire up to top up the battery pack and further extend the range.

The styling elements of the Chevrolet Volt concept is similar to that of the Chevrolet Camaro concept from 2006. Short front and rear overhangs and pronounced wheel arches give the Volt concept a compact yet sporty appearance.

With a seriously low roofline, the Volt concept has an extremely short windscreen and side windows, in order to improve the sense of space inside Chevrolet's designers have integrated a unique glass shoulderline running through both doors and an expansive glass roof.

Although the Chevrolet Volt is just a concept for the moment, and there are some complex engineering issues with the battery packs, it is not just a wild idea with no chance of production. GM is currently looking at the viability of producing a lithium-ion powered vehicle and bringing it to the market place.
