This is for echo (The Dolt).

This is why I may only have to change my brakes once in the car's life time ... or maybe never.

http://www.designnews.com/document.asp...

Regenerative braking has been around for almost 100 years. Diesel locomotives and troly cars were among the first to use regenerative braking.

http://www.howstuffworks.com/auto-parts/brake...

You see, you learned something. You know, you should know something about a subject before you make a statement about it. Sometimes it comes back and bites you. No brake pads until 3 mph. I have had my car for 19 months and I just cleaned my fron rims. They really didn't need cleaning. I just wanted them to match the back rims.

What an amazing car.

We all know how much the Europeans hate American cars. That makes the European awards the Volt has won even more impressive.

Such as "What Car" (England) award for best alternative fuel car.

http://www.evmart.co.uk/news/chevrolet-volt-w...

Bolstered by the European Volt winning the Monte Carlo Alternative Fuel Rally. Beating the worlds best diesels and bio-diesels.

http://www.carscoops.com/2012/03/opel-ampera-...

It also was awarded "Best Eco Car" by the English publication "Diesel Car".

http://www.autoevolution.com/news/chevy-volt-...

And of course, the Volt was the first American car ever to win European Car Of The Year.

What an amazing car.

Can't stand being proved wrong ... eh? That's two groups that compare cost of ownership of cars that put the Volt way ahead of a tin can Hyundai.
By the way .... it's Analyst. I can see you are not a guuuud spelller.
And you can laugh all you want. As I told other haters, if it relieves the pain of the pump, go ahead. Some people need to hate to feel better. Me ... I like putting money in my stock accounts.
I get to save over $1,000 a year and then watch it grow. You get to put it in your tank and watch it ...... go.
Hahahahhaha
No, for you the proper spelling is analist. And it's not a $7,500 credit, it's welfare. BTW you seem to change your line of BS with every post, but keep it flowing, you keep use amused.

The Volt is revolutionary. I'm glad to see so many people saving money at the gas pump.

I can tell you don't own a house, or have kids. Otherwise, you would know what a tax credit is.

Mitt Romney's tax credits added up to $1.3 million in 2011. He was at the head of the welfare line.

You need to get your finances in order and purchase a house so you can stop the hemoraging of money. Me .... I paid my house off in 1994.

I'm glad you like my humor, Dolt. I especially liked the line:
I get to watch my money grow,
You get to watch your money go.

And I do change with almost every post. I only repeat when haters don't read prior posts. Like ... I've already posted 3 different, reputable groups that show the Volt costs less than a tin can in less than 5 years. So, the next time you say I have to drive 170,000 miles to make up the difference in price, I'll find a fourth, and so on.

OK, glad you like my stuff. Pete likes it so much he added one more thumbs down. Now it's 14. I can see the fumes from here.

Hey Moe, look, it's Petey. His head is on fire. Nyuk, Nyuk, Nyuk, Nyuk.

Babble on! You need to learn the difference between a deduction against income and a credit.

A mortgage loan gets a credit against interest paid. It has nothing to do with income. Period. It is a tax brake, or credit. Where in the world did you ever hear that interest paid on a mortgage is connected to income?

I can tell ..... you have never bought a house! Let's put it this way TWM (aka Dolt), when you buy your first house and the tax man pulls out that big calckilator (sic) to figure out your credit against interest paid, you better not accept it, even though it will be in the thousands the first year ... because we all know you don't want to be a welfare recipient.

OK ... and by the way ... don't have kids either.

Tax credit (break) against interest paid.

You know Dolt ... there is a thing called "search". It helps to look things up before you make a dumb statement.

Just trying to help you out.

Later ... I have to run some errands in my amazing Volt.

World's first Volt sold ever. Owner getting 450 mpg.

http://insideevs.com/worlds-first-chevy-volt-...

I am right there with him. I have used 26 gallons of gas for 11,000 miles. That's 423 mpg.

Of course, I have to pay for charging. I pay 2.7 cents per mile. At $3.90 (current CA gas price), that comes to 144 mpg.

What an amazing car!!!

Tesla Model S Leading Auto Plug-In Race.

Bloomberg April 27, 2013

Tesla is North America's rechargeable auto sales leader so far in 2013.
Tesla reports 4750 deliveries of its EV Model S sedan in 2013 to date, surpassing General Motors' Chevrolet Volt which reported 4421 deliveries in the same period.
Considering Tesla began selling its Model S in mid 2012, this is a remarkable accomplishment.
The Model S comes with a base price of $69,900, and Tesla hasn't begun shipments beyond North America. The Model S goes as far as 483 kilometres on a charge.
