Australia: Volt sure to generate interest

Don’t nod off, this is an electric car like no other. While pure-electric cars create range anxiety – by running out of charge after 100-150km – the Holden Volt keeps on keeping on.

You could even cross the Nullarbor in it.

CLEANER FUEL OPTIONS

Built by Chevrolet, this 2011 World Green Car of the Year arrives in Australia late next year, though I’ve just had a spin in one in Sydney.

Not on the streets, mind you, but in a huge warehouse that’s also used for filming MasterChef.

Its unique technology overcomes most objections to going electric, apart from price.

Like other plug-in electric cars, it has a battery pack (lithium-ion) that can be charged from a socket for about $2.50.

This will provide about 80km of motoring while releasing zero tailpipe emissions.

It has a vital point of difference from purely electric city cars, such as the little $48,000 Mitsubishi iMiEV and coming Nissan Leaf.
