Chevy Volt Unplugged

About two more months are left until the Chevrolet Volt hits the limited number of regions in which it will be at first offered, but this does not stop American manufacturer GM from advertising some more one of its biggest gambles in years.

The carmaker announced today that a caravan of Volts will take to the road and embark on a 3,400 tour of the US. The first stop of the show-and-tell caravan will be Seattle, on October 9, while the last will be in Chicago, on November 20.

The nicest thing about the tour is the fact that GM will be giving its potential customers from the cities in which it will travel the opportunity to test drive the Volt. Similar in nature with the Freedom Drive of this summer, the tour will also see GM and Chevrolet trying to educate the public about this new way of motoring.

"The Volt Unplugged tour will give people a chance to get behind the wheel of the Volt and find out for themselves what makes this vehicle so special,"
said Tony DiSalle, Chevrolet Volt product and marketing director.

“This drive will demonstrate the one-of-a-kind capabilities of the Volt, the only electric vehicle able to drive such long distances under a variety of driving conditions and climates without having to stop to recharge.”

Yesterday, GM announced it has also created a so called Volt Customer Advisory Board. A group of 15 people will receive a Volt next month and be allowed to drive for three months, in an attempt to test the vehicle in real life conditions.
