One of the most frequent emails I get from folks is a request to be test drivers for pre-production Chevy Volts. I would say many of us here, myself included, would love to get their hands on an early Volt and enjoy the ride.
It is known that as GM moves closer to the launch of Volt sales in 2010 they are developing more and more refined pre-production prototypes in ever increasing numbers. It has been reported that a significant sized fleet of these cars will be on the roads by the end of next year.
Rumors have also arisen that Chevy dealers could get prototype shells as early as next year as showroom bait, something that GM officials and leading Chevy dealerships deny any knowledge of.
As to whether anyone outside of GM will able able to get their hands on a Volt prior to launch, GM vice chair Bob Lutz has apparently laid down the law:
“We’ll start releasing (the car) to the public in November of 2010. No one, no one, will get one any earlier.”
