It's official the Volt has it's first Michigan owner and Mark Lee is becoming the envy of all drivers.

"It drives amazing, my drive back from New York was 12 hours, it was very comfortable, it handled amazing," Lee said.

Lee drove the car back from New York weeks before the vehicles debut in Michigan. But he isn't the only man looking to score Chevy's newest electric car.

"We've been having people call us for almost 2 years," Jason Cords, General Manager of Shaheen Chevrolet said.

And locals will have to wait a little longer to get their hands on a model because it's not expected to arrive at Shaheen until late February.

"The car is built in Michigan, we thought that we would be one of the first dealers to get them but unfortunately they chose Texas and New York," Cords said.

The volt can get energy from any standard plug and costs a little over a dollar to charge per day. The vehicle will also be available for lease.

"For people that are going to buy, a $40,000 car sometimes makes it unaffordable," Cords said. "But if your going to lease it the payment should be a lot more affordable."

The Volt can go around 35 miles on battery power before gas is needed.
