Jay Leno recently spent some time with a pre-production Chevy Volt and its chief engineer, Andrew Farah. Leno’s crew caught the whole segment on video as the ardent car aficionado explained in simple terms how the Volt works, its benefits, and a disambiguation of the myths behind EVs. Leno also showed off some of the earliest EVs in the world, including a 1916 Owen Magnetic.

In the end, the conversation somehow took a turn to the Mazda Miata, wrist watches, and why men should purchase the Volt. In any event, click past the jump to see the video in all its glory.
