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.
