    Binary thinking out there for those striving for 100% EV is one reason the Volt doesn't sell better. Too bad people need to try for All EV and then end up driving a secondary ICE car or renting when...

    It is only fair if you use two inputs. Miles and weight. One prius mile is lighter on road use than one Hummer mile. Without tax on fuel, then a huge number must be made on mileage. Gas tax is a...

    I have posted many times that GM's primary problem in selling the Volt is with uniform dealership support. Forcing them to buy the battery tools a year or more ago, at $10k or be kicked out of the...

    Allstate has a high cost for Volt insurance. Because my agent says "the car is complex and has high costs if in a collision". Hybrid drivers may drive more cautiously but the insurance rates at...

    I am on plugshare with a 30A 6.6KW capable unit.
    I have had one call in the summer of 2013. It led to a nice meeting with some EV-advocates.

    Nissan dealership - it has come down to this

    Well, our local Nissan dealership is putting up signs now. I guess each vendor really kind of only wants to support their own EVs. Tesla does it via a proprietary connector architecture but now,...

    Generally, GM marketing never even covered any of this when marketing the Volt. Including the commonplace blowing away of the EPA ratings when driven normally. My 2011 still does 40-42 miles on...

    And yet today, you can buy a used Volt for under $15k and will be in great shape for another 80k to 100k miles.

    I have some scoring of the rear rotors. I think due to rocks getting between pads and rotors. Otherwise, no real wear after 55k miles. I would say no replacement needed unless something warps.

    If anyone is going to make an EV pickup truck, it would be Ford. Ranger-sized would be nice.

    I would still like to get ahold of an electric VW bus that had been seen as a concept vehicle.
