Any person that hasnít been behind the wheel of a Volt should certainly try it. They are a blast to drive and very peppy.
I have and it is incredible. The car, the total package is great. That in my opinion is why it is #1.

Had this up before. 3 Volts in one neighborhood. The first Volt is my son's. The second Volt belongs to the couple across the street from my Mom. The third Volt is mine.

The other short clips are of my Volt.

I didn't mean to imply that you were a hater. Haters keep repeating the same thing over and over that there are billions still coming down the pipe in the form of subsidies for these types of cars.

You can see one of the haters comment on this page that there are "bottomless" subsidies.

The whole bill for all of electrics and plug in's was $11 per person. Paid for long before this hater was old enough to pay taxes.

Toooooo funny.

Oh, and you can see another comment about welfare payments for these cars.

A. He forgets that all plug in's get the same credits.

B. Those are the purchaser's taxes that they get in return. Nobody elses.

C. His Hyundai is subsidized by American tax dollars. That's a real subsidy.

Too funny.

Why do you hate the USA? You should try serving your country so you can get an appreciation for where you live.

People like you are a stain on the American flag.

Very nice, I think the Volt is the best looking car in its segment. Thanks for sharing.

BTW - Doltpete is the same person.

Naw ... Pete and Dolt are two different people. Dolt has multiple personalities. Like the guy from N.Y.

One crazy (and fast) electric car. The video is kind of long, so if you just want to see it scoot, fast forward to the last minute.

Translation: if Tesla takes off it will be purchased by Mercedes or toyota. Akerson doesnít want to lose the competitive edge.

I think GM should have done this in the 80's. It's very smart to know and understand your competition.

I think the real reason is that Volt has turned out to be a dog. Tesla is a sexy car that can run circles around Volt. GM realizes that and wants to learn why Tesla is so much better.

Good point never thought of that. They are trying to enter and I bet some will buy what they offer. I have a sneaky suspicion that Volt's unmatched success in this field will continue. They are working on the next Volt now and I bet it moves even faster. I'm glad they did so well with the original Volt but now it is aging. It would be nice if someone could out do it for at least a year.

Too Funny.
The Fed continues to provide financial stimulus by buying $85 billion a month in government and mortgage bonds and other long-term low rates...

and with the national debt at $16.7 trillion...

That it can't afford to keep the" bail outs" open.

Too Funny.

I look forward to someone stepping up and getting the number one position from the Volt. Sooner or later one of these other cars can do it.
