Volt to be built in Britain?
Although it is going on sale in the USA in 2010 as the Chevrolet Volt, it would then be badged as a Vauxhall in the UK and Opel in Europe.
Both Vauxhall and Opel believe that having the Volt in their portfolios would give their brands a technology boost.
The Volt runs on electric power only for up to 40 miles, but uses a 1.4-litre petrol engine to charge the batteries and extend the range to up to 400 miles. It can also be plugged in to the mains for charging.
