Holden VOLT hits Australian roads at the end of 2012
Added by admin 15/4/12

Known as the Chevy VOLT in the US, this left-hand drive version is an extended range electric vehicle. This is unlike the Toyota Prius in that the petrol powered engine/generator only comes into play to keep the battery pack topped up when it becomes close to being empty. Sources say that the petrol engine never actually powers the drive wheels directly. The cost of the E-REV, as it is known, is still unknown, but guesses are that it may exceed $A60,000.
