November 11th is the official date for Job 1 of Chevrolet Volt production. The exact date was confirmed by a General Motors spokesman to Autoblog Green, and the date should remain the same as long as no issues with government certification and all pre-production testing is complete.
Cars generally start getting to dealers roughly one month after production begins, meaning cars should hit dealerships in December. However, some are suggesting that GM may hold an event to commemorate deliveries of the first cars at the same time as the Los Angeles Auto Show on November 17-18.
