Interesting. I'm not buying one, but from what I've read, while being highly over priced, the Volt is actually a pretty good car.Chevrolet has done an absolutely fantastic job with their latest star as it carries a feel of quality thought not to exist in a GM product outside of a Corvette. Blame can perhaps be put on too much development and investing into the Volt (i.e. the Vette) but at the end of the day, the work can be felt and seen. The electric Chevy is a very handsome looking sedan, an uncommon trait of most hybrids and EVs, and many passers-by mentioned it looked like it spent a lot time in a wind tunnel. As a car, the Volt is hands down, one of the best GMs in recent history but the story changes when other slightly more real factors come into play.

As an answer to the alternative vehicle question, the Volt isn’t the best response but that doesn’t mean it is a bad car. In reality, it is an excellent example of what proper time and development can do for a vehicle and if comfortable, luxurious, entertaining and efficient driving is up your ally, then the 2012 Chevrolet Volt should not be ignored.

I'm hoping that the project doesn't die, and in a few product generations they have something that's good, fast and cheap. Not exactly betting on it, though . . . just hoping.

The US government should apologize to Toyota for attempting to hurt them with ridiculous floor mat recalls and for supporting a piece of shit Detroit project. Detroit cars were the worst in the world in the 70-90's which is what taxpayer money is paying for nowadays. The pension and benefits to the retards who were involved in making shit and selling it as real cars. Toyota hybrids are boring looking but that is the way to go. All electric is never going to be more than around the town thing like a golf cart. I regularly trickle charge my Optima battery in my all gas engine equipped vehicle!
