General Motors is already aggressively marketing its Chevy Volt plug-in hybrid via the Summer Olympics although the car is not expected in showrooms until 2010. The commercial celebrates the car as the leader of Chevy's "American Revolution" campaign as the hybrid can travel up to 40 miles between charges and gets the equivalents of 150 miles per gallon.

Oh, it's two? Er -- fewer than two? One and change? Well, it could happen.
