Won't work. Tesla has a proprietary connector that won't fit your Volt's J1772. There may be an adapter but it's going to be very expensive, anywhere from $750 to $1,000. Plus the charger itself, even if you can connect it, probably won't work either. Tesla does everything to the beat of its own drummer.
Calling the standard connector "ugly," Tesla has instead developed its own plug and charger that will be available to Model S owners. Compared to the home setup for current Tesla owners, the new solution is more compact and much neater.
However, Tesla's dismissal of the J1772's aesthetics shouldn't be taken as a sign that Model S owners will be left with few alternatives when it comes to juicing up their new sedans. Tesla says the charging kit each owner receives will include connectors for standard 120v and 240v outlets, as well as an adapter for the plug-ugly J1772.
