NJ Retiree Takes Delivery Of First Chevy Volt 12-15-2010

DENVILLE, N.J.A retired airline pilot living in New Jersey is the nation's first owner of GM's much-ballyhooed Chevrolet Volt hybrid electric vehicle.
Sixty-nine-year-old Jeffrey Kaffee of Parsippany returned early from a Florida vacation to take delivery of the vehicle Wednesday morning at a Chevy dealership in Denville.
Kaffee told the Daily Record of Parsippany that he paid about $42,000 for the vehicle, trading in a 2005 Toyota Prius.
Chevrolet said his is one of 360 Volts being shipped this week from its Detroit-Hamtramck assembly plant.
Others are en route to dealers in California, Texas and the Washington, D.C., and New York metro areas.
The Volt can travel for about 35 miles on electricity before a gasoline engine takes over.
