December 21, 2010 – New Canaan, CT
It’s a great day to drive Electric!
After nearly 47 months of anticipation, the Chevy VOLT has evolved from a bold auto show concept, unveiled by GM Executive Bob Lutz at the January 2007 Detroit Auto Show, to the ground breaking, award winning production vehicle that it is today. The Chevrolet VOLT is the world’s first extended range electric vehicle; the first electric vehicle with unlimited range. KARL Chevrolet is proud to make the first official delivery of a 2011 Chevrolet VOLT to a Connecticut resident today, December 21, 2010, at 2:30pm.
Frank and Linda Calder will take delivery of a beautiful new Diamond White Tricoat Metallic VOLT featuring Ebony Leather interior with Ceramic White accents – VOLT #029 that has been built! Frank is a retired engineer from Duracell Corporation, and the VOLT is Linda’s Christmas present. Frank has been closely following the VOLT’s development on www.GM-VOLT.com, a blog site started by NY area physician, Dr. Lyle Dennis. Frank has also been a regular visitor to KARL Chevrolet’s website and the Calders placed their order back in July when VOLT orders were first accepted. At that time, Frank stated his goal was to “get Linda a VOLT for Christmas.” We are very pleased to have been able to accommodate the Calder’s wishes, and would like to extend a thank you to John Hughes at GM who helped make this Christmas gift a reality.
As the first customers to own a VOLT in Connecticut, and among the first VOLT owners in the Country, the Calders are very excited to take delivery. We will post an update later today with some additional comments. In the interim, you are invited to stop by the KARL Chevrolet showroom on Elm Street in New Canaan, to check out the 2011 Chevrolet VOLT in person. Our staff would be happy to provide a personalized glimpse at the future of Electric Driving! CLICK HERE for additional information on the all new 2011 Chevrolet VOLT.
