When cut, my ancestors and I
When cut, my ancestors and I have always bled "blue bow-ties". I do not know anyone in my family, both past and present, that have owned a foreign car. Our allegience to American Capitalism is borderline fanatical.
I personally have been continuously involved in my profession with electric transportation functions. In 1975 I cut my first teeth on the General Electric EV1 SCR controller printed circuit board for battery electric transportation systems.
The GM-Volt is a viable reality.
No matter what the cost, I will buy one. I will park it beside my Corvette, Buick Roadmaster, Cadillac, and Oldsmobile. I will drive it to work every day and, as normal, continue to ignore Hondas and Toyotas traveling along the way.
I just did the math. At 17
I just did the math. At 17 miles/gallon and 40,000 miles per year I will burn through over 90K in five years with my current SUV (loan payment and gas usage). Ya I know; what am I doing driving an SUV and looking at the Volt? Answer - two faces have I.
Anyway the point is 90K is a lot of money. Even at 26 miles/gallon the cost is around 75K over five years.
The point - Chevy could sell the Volt for a lot and still save people money. They shouldn't wait until the battery technology allows them to sell the Volt at a lower price. The Volt should be on the market today.
I would buy one and keep my SUV for the weekends.
I would buy it today. If I
I would buy it today. If I could sign up to order it now I would.
