  1. the us government did the cash for clunkers to get rid of your way out, you
    think they want you to get better mpg they want that fuel tax so bad they
    can taste it so they are patiently setting up the population to have
    scrapped their way out vehicle, and then BAM pay road tax extra impact fee
    or no tag renual. gotcha, its coming ..so you will be paying a premium home
    power bill a tag tax a non fuel tax road use tax GOTCHA miserable
    electronic nightmare vehicle no one but the STEALERSHIP can repair gotcha
    again hahah I love my NON CAFE 1972 Chevrolet Kingswood station wagon no
    electronics ahhh whew… not going to step into big brothers bear trap..

  2. In all honesty, Jeff Gluck said there is a different kind of an enthusiasm
    when you see how far you are getting and how little gas you are using.

    He said it’s different, but that it is certainly there.

  3. A standard of living that we are accustomed to! Everyone should have the
    right to work and buy Walmart crap!

  4. Great car.. now when you charge it just put a Bedini 3 coil charger on it
    and charge it for free… totally possible. Proven scientific fact..
    Hopefully one day they make it so you never have to charge your car.. by
    using magnetic energy and electronic enduced coils to charge to cars
    batterys on the go or whenever its on.. or whenever you hit charge.. its
    possible and this would literally CHANGE THE WORLD! Great car though.. i
    love the electric geeky sides. wish there was more though! should be.

  5. How did the Volt fail? Because the sails aren’t what they wanted? That
    doesn’t constitute a failure when it comes to a car. A bad car or lemon is
    a fail, and thats not the Volt.

  6. You can’t tell me that Tesla doesn’t have problems! If you think there
    perfect, watch the movie ” revenge of the electric car. I love my Volt and
    its got lots of pick up off the line, for you haters out there. Don’t be
    scared of things you don’t understand, change is good remember that! Just
    think, what ever money is being spent on the Volt stays in US, can you say
    that about the leaf or even Tesla? Not a bad deal when you think about it
    that way, sometimes you have to spend some extra cash for

  7. No. All winter I was only getting about 36 miles in EV mode. Temperatures
    are now in the low 80’s and I got 49 miles EV yesterday. There can not be a
    memory build up due to the built in buffer that is never used. The battery
    is never totally depleted.

  8. I have been to truck stops and cafe’s in Saskatchewan where the power
    outlets were sealed to prevent truckers and travellers from plugging in
    their laptop computers and cell phones. I was at one establishment where
    they charged an additional $5 to plug in your laptop or phone. I have a
    feeling (they) will be doing the same thing in public parking lots;
    charging people not only to park but to charge their vehicles as well. I
    don’t see this future being cheaper; it is certainly less practical.

  9. yes it does. Every month or so when you buy 8 gallons to fill up it’s tough
    to remember to get premium…

  10. Once again. There is no transmission. There is a planatary gear that
    connects the E motor to the wheels (very simply put). The E motor spins
    backwards when in reverse. Even in low “gear”, the E motor is doing all of
    the braking. Adding a transmission just for the sake of shifting would
    probably be impossible, and even if it were, why would you? It would just
    add to the cost of the car.

  11. Then I guess I’ll just keep going on gas and forget about charging. The
    point is being missed. According to the last census, the average American
    daily commute is less than 40 miles. I think the GM engineers were
    targeting that number. Even if you commute 80 miles a day, you are getting
    about 80-90 combined mpg. If you commute less than 40 miles, your charging
    costs drive the equivalent mpg. at 12.5 cents per kwh, at current gas
    prices, this comes to 105 mpg. That’s a nice number!

  12. Owner’s of electric cars don’t ever have to buy gas. They are getting
    unlimited mpg. I can’t wait until I can buy a Tesla. The Tesla Model S is
    more expensive, but better in every way, except range; but thinking people
    know that’s not a real issue. The Volt is definitely cool, but it is made
    up of many compromises. I don’t want to sacrifice comfort, style, speed, or
    space. That is why I want a Model S. Tesla technology is the future, not
    Nissan’s, Ford’s, GM’s, or Fisker’s for that matter.
