Chevy Volt

So what does everyone think? I'm not too impressed, but it's a start at least.

Re: Chevy Volt

I'd love to have something like that to drive back and forth to work. I get all the way here and back without burning a single drop of gas. Wonder how much of a hit it would put on my utility bill, though?

Re: Chevy Volt

it probably wont take THAT much to power the car~ probably about 50 cents a mile when you do the math probably overall cost would be a dollar a mile or so~

Sure it's not the best looking thing. Infinite MPG for less than 30k a year? Yeah, I don't mind having a car that doesn't look so hot sitting next to the 'vette in the garage.

Re: Chevy Volt

Wow, at those prices it'd be insane not to get it. I think the\Volt looks a lot like the new Camaro..

If Ford would make a car that could go 40 miles on 0 gallons of gas, I'd be singing its praises, too.

Re: Chevy Volt

fyi, I am doing a study on gas to electric cars, pricing, and complete packages to solar panel systems and I should get it all done by next week.

Re: Chevy Volt

Anybody read the electrical demand or consumption on these things while charging? If someone finds it, I'll calculate the bill increase at work one day.

EDIT: Nevermind, reading comprehension owns me.
