The pre-production Volts, which will continue to be built in the coming months, will not be sold at dealerships. Rather, they will be examined by manufacturing engineers as the plant gets ready to build retail models later in the year.
“We have a very experienced workforce at this plant and through all of their preparation and training workers here have been given the privilege to take GM into the future with this car,” said Detroit-Hamtramck plant manager Teri Quigley.
This comes to us on the heels of the announcement that the U.S. Federal Government has pre-ordered the first 100 Volts from Chevrolet. These first 100 units will be delivered later in the year and will not include any of the pre-production manufacturing models discussed here.
The GM Authority team thinks it’s truly awesome to witness a vehicle such as the Volt go through its various stages before reaching the full-blown manufacturing process. This – ladies and gentlemen – is history in the making!
We have GM’s full presser, along with a high-res gallery of the Volt, after the jump.
