The Chevy Volt -- unplugged
A chance for a test drive
The Chevy Volt, which has become an automotive rock star in the world of green vehicles, is on a 12-city U.S. tour this fall, giving Americans a chance to take a close-up look at the car, which has an electric-only driving range of 25 to 50 miles. The Volt rolls into Washington this weekend, with a couple of different opportunities for public test drives.
The first is on Friday, at the site of the former Washington Convention Center, at 11th and H streets NW, in City Center parking lot A. The event is from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. To reserve a drive time, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org. The Volt will also be available for test drives from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday at the same location.
Friday night the Volt will be on display at Redwood Restaurant & Bar, 7121 Bethesda Lane, in Bethesda from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. There will be free food, and you can RSVP to receive a ticket for a complimentary drink. More information is available on the Tweet-Up invitation.
Washington is one of seven markets where the Volt is expected to go on sale later this year.
