"It gives me driving pleasure, and everyone stares at it and wants to know more about it."

Mumbai, India - Long before "green" cars became trendy in other parts of the world, a boxy electric two-seater began rolling out of a small factory in the Indian city of Bangalore, which was then emerging as a software services hub.
General Motors Corp on Tuesday unveiled the production version of the Chevrolet Volt, a curvy four-seater that is designed to run for 64 kilometers on a lithium-ion battery pack that can be recharged at a standard electric outlet.
