it's a death trap.

All small cars have low safety ratings. If it's a "green" car, the standards are lowered.

If I recall; 2000 more deaths a year are acceptable.


Not to mention it doesn't save fuel, you have to pay to have its charger installed and all drives must be round trip since there is no place to plug it in.

Death trap?

Quote:
The Volt and the Nissan (NSANY) Leaf electric car were both recently given Top Safety Pick Awards by the privately funded Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. The Institute, which is financed by auto insurers, conducts a different set of crash tests from those conducted by the government. To earn a Top Safety Pick Award, a vehicle must earn top scores in all of the Institute's tests.
Volt earns top gov't safety rating - Jun. 3, 2011
Why you guys are so fixated on this car is beyond me. It's almost like the oil companies are paying yas..

You can plug it into a household outlet, it just takes longer to charge. It also can run with the aid of gasoline

As yet nobody have ever shown us how electric cars are a solution to our energy problems.

They still demand the same amount of energy to do the work as every other car.

I'll probably buy several in the next few years. I've got this big hole out back and figure they'll be cheap fill.

Bingo!! the question is how many miles per pound of coal. Its a slight of hand thing,you won't see the trick if your not paying attention.

Electric cars are part of our future,we just need to keep perspective.

The Volt probably has a place. If you live in an urban area and use your car to run to the store, get your hair done, pick up at the dry cleaners, it makes more sense. It's just extremely expensive for such tasks and probably not worth it.

Too much $ for too little car.
I have a Gemcar that works out nicely where I live.
It's charged by the wind.

The government is going to pay you $10,000 to buy a Volt.

Objective Conservative: Now He Wants to Give You $10,000 to Purchase A Chevrolet Volt

If you fall for this, you will get a 1099 so you can dutifully be taxed on the 10,000. That's what they did in the cash for clunkers program too.
