General Motors is gearing up to take six Chevrolet Volts on a 3,400 mile drive from Seattle, Washington to Chicago, Illinois. The trip, called the Volt Unplugged Tour, gives consumers a chance to drive a Volt, meet the people responsible for developing the vehicle, and participate in various Volt-related activities. The tour will also give Chevrolet representatives a chance to speak to various community leaders, schools, and consumers about the Volt.
“The Volt Unplugged tour will give people a chance to get behind the wheel of the Volt and find out for themselves what makes this vehicle so special,” said Tony DiSalle, Chevrolet Volt product and marketing director. This drive will demonstrate the one-of-a-kind capabilities of the Volt, the only electric vehicle able to drive such long distances under a variety of driving conditions and climates without having to stop to recharge.”
The Volt Unplugged Tour reminds us of the Volt Freedom Drive that GM held back in July. The tour will make the following stops:
- Oct. 9 and 10 – Seattle
- Oct. 13 and 14 – San Francisco
- Oct. 16 – 18 – Los Angeles
