NJ charged up about Chevy Volt's arrival

DENVILLE - One of the first new plug-in electric cars has made its way to the Garden State.

The Chevy Volt is one of the world's first mass-produced, plug-in electric vehicles. It can get up to 35 miles on a single charge and once that's used up, a gas generator kicks in and creates the needed electricity for about 340 miles.

"You can actually go days, even weeks, without using any gasoline at all - it can be strictly electric mode," says Chevy Volt owner Jeffrey Kaffee, of Parsippany.

The Volt costs about $41,000, but buyers get a $7,500 tax credit, which helps offset the cost.
