General Motors Getting Closer to Launch of 2011 Chevy Volt - VIDEO FEATURE
DETROIT - May 12, 2010: With the upcoming launch of Chevy's 2011 Volt at the end of this year, electric cars are quickly becoming a reality.

Using millions of computer simulations that allow more testing in less time, General Motors was able to build this electric car in less than five years. If fact, the powerful lithium-ion batteries that power the Volt are running non-stop at a state-of-the-art lab, to simulate a 10-year lifespan.
