Sales of the 2011 Chevrolet Volt commenced in the U.S. in mid-December 2010 and was released in various European and other international markets starting in September 2011.

Once the engine is running in this extended range mode, it may at times be linked mechanically (via a clutch) to assist the traction motor in propelling the car
