4 More States Added to the Volt?s Launch Markets
Yesterday, Ed Whitacre, GM?s Chairman and CEO, announced that Chevrolet is adding Texas, New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut to the launch markets for the Volt. Whitacre said the company is expanding the initial launch of the groundbreaking electric vehicle in response to intense interest in the Volt from customers across the country. The announcement brings the initial Volt retail markets to seven, including California, Michigan, and Washington, D.C. The retail launch in Texas and New York will begin with Austin and New York City in late 2010. The balance of Texas and New York, as well as New Jersey and Connecticut, are scheduled to begin receiving Volts in early 2011.
