Chevy Volt

Chevrolet are to build an electric powered car hybrid with a 3cyl 1litre engine (based on the Vauxhall Corsa) and the chassis is based on the Vauxhall Astra
it will hit 122mph top and cover about 45miles on the electric motor but the petrol motor doesnt drive it, it acts as a petrol generator and does over 100miles per gallon used!
click me!

That is a nice looking car. I'm assuming it would be sold in the U.S. if it makes it to production.

No. It would, or atleast should, be a Chevrolet, as there's now a Chevy UK. Don't forget that all those rebadged Daewoo's are 'Europe only' cars. So this Chevy could be the same! Also, given the engine it has I'm assuming it's sourced from Vauxhall...as with most of Daewoo's engines of past years

And yes, I was refering to the Toyota Prius
