X11ch_vt007

A full reveal of the production-ready 2011 Chevrolet Volt took place in September after we were teased with glimpses of the electrically driven car for months. Detailed information about the Volt was finally revealed, including a production start date of late 2010. Other notables this month include the all-new 2009 Audi A4 and 2009 Acura TL hitting dealerships, plus the announcement of a subcompact 2009 Pontiac G3 hatchback for next year. As always, we remind our readers that we don't list models that are rumored; we only list confirmed vehicles.

Like I said last time, the 2009 Yaris 5 door is announced (not rumored) and is now even on Toyota's website.

Tod,
sorry that slipped by us. We'll add it.

Chris

Any word on the 2010 Mazda3? Some are claiming it could be out as soon as Jan 2009.

Also, any date for the 2009 Subaru Impreza Outback Sport?
