Volt Fraud At Government Motors

The Chevy Volt, hailed by the Obama administration as the electric savior of the auto industry and the planet, makes its debut in showrooms next month, but it's already being rolled out for test drives by journalists. It appears we're all being taken for a ride.
Read the rest for yourself. It's a Prius in disguise. Hahahahahha

Here's the quote from Car & Driver:

"...one thing’s for sure: Operating an EV can be exceptionally cheap. Assuming 35 miles of electric range for the Volt yields a cost per mile of just 4.6 cents. That’s almost 40 percent less than that of a Volkswagen Golf TDI diesel getting 40 mpg and 24 percent cheaper than a Prius getting 45 mpg."

Fred, the editorial writers at Investors Daily want to play politics instead of giving the Volt a fair hearing.

It is only when the Volt is operating on the engine alone, that the mileage figures quoted come into play.

The Volt was designed for city use within its specified range. However, if one wants to use the car for longer distances and time, then, of course the gas engine engages.

Here is where the EPA labeling is discussed.

Again, it appears that this post is misleading regarding the vehicle in question.

If you like it so much then buy one.

will sink like a stone. Forty large for a car that might get you around town for an hour before you have to go home and plug it in? The Volt will go the way of the Evo, which GM had the good sense not to put into production.

Patience is a great virtue.

Did you even read the Car and Driver report you linked? The car will tell you that you have to use the gas in the tank. The GM people have lied about other parts of the car also. This is from the report you linked " Things get even more complex in the powertrain, more so than we were initially led to believe". And of course there is this little troubling fact "Currently, 48 of 50 states have fewer than 10 charging stations". Car and Driver won't take a chance on losing the huge advertising budget of GM, so don't expect a true report on this car anytime soon.
Of course I expect that those who believe in it as strongly as LSW have already put thier order in, right Luke?
