General Motors is planning to launch the new Chevrolet Volt electric car model with a great momentum in North America. The car is also known as EV2 which is slated for launch by late 2010 or early 2011. It is not a hybrid vehicle, but a pure EV. Volt relies solely on its battery and only uses the engine to extend the vehicle’s driving range which is quite different from a typical hybrid vehicle which uses battery just to supplement performance or deliver better fuel economy as its solely relies on its engine.
