Piloted by Andrew Farah, vehicle chief engineer for the Chevrolet Volt, the car was driven entirely in EV mode - impressive when you see the speed displayed.

From the video it would appear the Volt is nearly ready for production with pricing suggested as being 'close to US$40,000'. Fortunately Volt will qualify for US$7,500 in tax credits which will help bring that figure in-line with GM's original hopes of a near US$30,000 RRP.

The Chevrolet Volt is due to go on sale across the US in late 2010.
