We ordered the 2011 Chevy Volt back in October 2010. Because it is only being built in limited numbers, it took till April for it to finally arrive. Car is numbered 2227 and was built around Wendy's birthday on March 16, so I guess that makes it her birthday present. Only available in about 6 markets at the time and the DC area is closest to home. Actually picked it up in Gaithersburg, MD at Criswell Chevrolet then spent some time tooling around in D.C. Now that it's back home in Charlotte, we commute to work on electricity alone. Did need to use some gas to get it from DC to Charlotte. Other images show how I was interviewed by the local media with the local energy company as they did a story on a Pilot Program to install a 240 Volt charging station.
