GM CEO Ed Whitacre Jr. announced today that the automaker would expand the number of markets targeted for the launch of the new 2010 Chevrolet Volt from three to seven.

The new markets include Texas, New York, New Jersey and Connecticut. Previously, the Volt had been slated for release in California, Washington, D.C., and Michigan.

In Texas, GM will focus the Volt’s launch in the greater Austin area, and Whitacre highlighted this by delivering his speech to the Austin Chamber of Commerce. It also seems that GM wants to demonstrate the Volt’s capability in both hot and cold regions of the country.

The extended-range electric vehicle goes on sale this fall.
