To help promote the upcoming Chevrolet Volt and provide owners and potential owners with a place to discuss the ground-breaking car, General Motors has launched a new forum called ChevroletVoltage.com. And to help kick-start interest in the forum, GM has released a video of the build process for the prototype Volt cars.

The Voltage site is an official GM social networking site, intended to compliment private forms, like VoltForums.com, which are also dedicated to the plug-in hybrid.

Chevy’s VP Ed Peper says the site’s intent is, “To inform and engage concerned individuals about the movement toward alternative transportation energy source and to provide a behind-the-scenes view of how one manufacturer, Chevrolet, is working to bring its advanced extended range electric vehicle to life.”

Being a social networking site, GM doesn’t just want to promote conversation between those members of the public interested in the car, but also wants to get those same folks invoved with the staff at GM responsible for the production of the Volt; even inviting them to send topics and questions to the staff running the site. ChevroletVoltage will also feature polls and information on events related to the Volt.
