[ad#post_ad]General Motors has graciously offered members of the GM-Volt.com community the opportunity for an exclusive test drive of a pre-production Chevrolet Volt.
Space is being limited to only 10 participants and the event will take place at the end of March in New York City either on the 29th or 30th. The final date, time, and location will be announced shortly.
In addition to the opportunity to drive the car around a half mile track, and experience both EV and generator mode, executives from the Volt team will be on hand for discussion.
I wish I could invite everyone who reads this site to be there, but at this time it is unfortunately just not possible. The most equitable solution I concluded was to hold a contest.
Starting today, if you are interested, submit either an essay up to 400 words, or a YouTube-hosted video up to 2 minutes, entitled “Why I Want a Chevy Volt.”
You must send your entry or its url to firstname.lastname@example.org for it to be considered. Writing it in the comments section of this post will not allow it to be considered.
The top ten entries will be chosen from all essay submissions and videos submitted by March 12th. The overall best submission will also have their travel expenses up to $500 paid thanks to GM-Volt.com site sponsor NetLook.com. Entries will be judged on their creativity, passion, quality and entertainment value. Other factors such as GM-Volt.com site participation may be considered.
The winners will be announced and posted here as soon as they are determined.
