GM shows off electric cars in SF

General Motors will show off its Chevy Volt Concept—an extended-range electric concept car—in the Bay Area this week and next with a tour of local attractions.

The Chevy Volt sedan, a plug-in hybrid, allows a driver to travel up to 40 miles a day on a single charge with no gas and no tailpipe emissions, and is recharged by plugging it into a 110-volt electrical outlet. A “FlexFuel” engine that can run on gasoline, ethanol or a combination of the two can extend the vehicle’s range up to 640 miles.

The vehicle will be on show Thursday, Dec. 13 from 7 a.m. to 9:30 p.m. at Justin Herman Plaza in San Francisco, on Friday from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. at Fisherman’s Wharf, on Saturday from 9 a.m. to 11 p.m. at Macy’s Union Square, on Sunday from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. at Pier 39, and onTuesday Dec. 18 from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. at Stanford Shopping Center.
