Chevy Volt to be tested in ’08

General Motors will begin testing the revolutionary electric drive system in the Chevrolet Volt concept car on the road in vehicles next spring, company Vice Chairman Bob Lutz said at a dinner Monday night.

By this time next year, GM may allow selected people outside the company to test the system.”You personally will be able to experience the joy of gliding down I-94 at 70 miles an hour” solely on electric power, Lutz said at a preview dinner for the Frankfurt Auto Show.

GM is committed to putting the system in the Chevrolet Volt for sale by 2010, Lutz said.
