DETROIT - General Motors unveils a shocking concept car today: the Chevrolet VOLT.

The VOLT moves GM toward a car driven solely by electrical components - yes, an electric car.

But it's one that plugs in to a normal outlet to recharge and has a small engine on board.


Reflex features an advanced diesel-electric hybrid propulsion system that harnesses diesel, electric and solar power. This combination of power can deliver maximum fuel economy - up to 65 mpg - without compromising performance.

The Concept-CT is revealed to the world by Mitsubishi Motors North America on Monday, Jan. 9, 2006 at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit. The Concept-CT utilizes the Mitsubishi In-wheel Electric Vehicle (MIEV) hybrid powertrain, which employs an electric motor in each of the vehicle's four wheels. The ultra-compact four-door hatchback maximizes interior space and combines practicality, fun-to-drive performance and low fuel consumption.
