Shanghai, China – General Motors has announced the arrival of the first drivable Chevrolet Volt in China. The country will be one of the initial markets outside of the United States to receive the Volt when it goes on sale next year.
“GM has made a long-term commitment to bringing our industry-leading technology to China,” said Kevin Wale, president and manging director of the GM China Group. “This is enabling us to provide the best mobility solutions for addressing the transportation challenges associated with the growth in demand for personal mobility. With GM taking the lead, the development of electric vehicles is opening up entirely new industries.”
GM delivered two Volts to the Shanghai Expo Bureau for use as part of its VIP transportation fleet at World Expo 2010 Shanghai. The Volt will shuttle special guests to and from Expo Park.
