There's a growing waiting list to buy General Motors' new electric vehicle, the Chevrolet Volt. More than 33,000 prospective buyers have signed up on an unofficial waiting list on one website. The Chevy Volt is an all-electric car equipped with a lithium-ion battery that can be recharged using a standard outlet.

GM says the Volt is capable of traveling up to 40 miles using only electric power.

The automaker says it hopes to mass-produce the Volt by 2010.
