Live web chat with Chevrolet Volt marketing director, Tony DiSalle

Chevrolet announced today that it is expanding the initial list of retail markets where the 2011 Chevrolet Volt will be available when it goes on sale late this year. After previously announcing that the Volt would only be available in California, Michigan and Washington DC, Austin, Texas and New York City are now added to the list.

Early in 2011, the rest of New York State, Connecticut, and New Jersey will join the list of place where a Volt can be purchased. At this point, General Motors has not yet announced how much the Volt will cost and that announcement is not expected until sometime later this summer.

In the meantime, Chevrolet is driving a Volt from Austin to New York City in a 1,776 mile freedom drive over the holiday weekend to demonstrate that this is a go anywhere electric vehicle. The Volt has an initial 40 mile all-electric driving range on a full charge of its lithium ion battery. Once the battery is depleted a 1.4-liter inline-four cylinder engine will fire up to drive a generator that maintains the charge of the battery allowing it to drive another 300 miles.

Volt marketing director Tony DiSalle will be taking questions about the marketing plans for the extended range EV at 4pm EDT today.  Readers can submit their questions using the form below and then watch at 4pm for responses from DiSalle.
