Re: Chevy Volt: 1 Year Later?
Any car that has a $40K part is a gamble to own. As I recall, the battery is basically the entire floor of the car, so what if you're in a minor accident that damages the battery? What's it going to cost to insure that car?
Let's hope Tesla doesn't turn into another Solyndra. It doesn't look good right now.
I still don't see what the advantage is in paying $40-50K for a mostly electric vehicle when you can buy a Toyota Prius for $24K that gets 50 MPG. Why not save $15K or so and cough up the money to buy two gallons of gas for every 100 miles you drive?
