Two reporters from NBC – Matt Lauer and Phil LeBeau broadcasted a test drive with Chevy Volt.
The reporters actually got to test drive the same Volt Cruze Mule that Rick Wagoner drove to Washington DC. There are too many variables that could change between now and November 2010 when it hits showrooms. I just can’t wait that date, anyway.
Let’s see what’s one of the reporters, M LeBeau said on his blog:
Impressive. Very impressive. I spent part of Wednesday afternoon tooling around GM’s tech center in a “mule” version of the Volt. When I hit the gas, the acceleration was instant. Like all electric cars, the torque and response from the car is immediate. The Volt will deliver the same performance you would get from a car with 250 horse power.
The other thing that stands out about the Volt is how smooth and quiet it is. There is not the whirring sound that I have heard in other electric cars I have driven. It also feels effortless when you are driving it. All around, I can see why executives at GM have growing confidence
I’m quite inpatient to see this car actually hit the market.
