You’ll be able to get a rare glimpse at a new electric car at the American Folk Festival in Bangor this weekend.It will be the first time the 2011 Chevrolet Volt has been on display in New England.The car can go 40-miles on an electric charge. A generator lets the Volt travel longer distances.Folks who promote the product say the Folk Festival gives them a great chance to interest and educate consumers.”It’s a great chance for us to get out and talk to the public about this technology that’s coming their way pretty soon and get out and educate people so that they’ll be ready for it and know that it’s coming their way,” said Stephen Marlin, Driver Relationship Manager.The first Volts for sale will be available next year in just a few cities including Washington D.C., Los Angeles and New York.The car should be on the market in New England sometime in 2012.
