will electric cars change our lives? Join us as we take a road trip in a Chevy Volt — and share your thoughts about the plug-in driving experience.

Media producer Jim Seida and I will take turns behind the wheel of a Volt on Monday and Tuesday for the 800-mile drive between Seattle and San Francisco, on the first leg of Chevrolet's "Volt Unplugged" tour around the nation. Along the way, we're going to be sending updates, photos and video about the real-world driving experience.
