2011 Chevrolet Volt

2011 Chevrolet Volt

Just incase you missed some of the reports during the mountains of media coming out on the Chevrolet Volt over the last couple of weeks, Chevrolet is planning a intriguing marketing ploy for Monday, November 30th, 2009. Yes, the Chevrolet Volt is scheduled to make an appearance in front of hundreds of middle school students and teachers tomorrow as part of what is being positioned as a “science lesson” complete with Volt educational materials and lesson plans for the teachers.

The presentation is supposed to begin at 9:40 a.m. and last until 10 a.m. pacific standard time and take the students and teachers on a journey that will explore the basics of electricity and how this common energy source could change the future of the automobile and driving. Autoblog Green explained the event last week by saying, ““On November 30th, hundreds of middle school students and teachers will assemble at the Harvard-Westlake School in Los Angeles, along with untold thousands of their electronically-linked peers, to take part in a giant show-and-tell webcast featuring that upcoming electric car with the built-in range extender, the 2011 Chevy Volt.”

Inside Line’s comments on the press release last week were less informative, but possibly more thought provoking. They threw this out there: “Does this now mean that every automaker with a new product to shill can have equal time in the classroom? It's a scary day for American education.” A good question, but will it stir up as much controversy as President Obama wanting to speak to the youth of America in a similar venue? Considering that Tiger Woods’ SUV Accident still seems to dominate the news, I am guessing this one might squeak buy without the fire and brimstone.
