    I used the heck out of my Volt range extender the past few days. Nicely burning gas at 42 mpg. The best range extender is a much better public charging network. Adding a Tesla "anything" to a Volt...

    This makes perfect sense. The EREV makes a perfect EV with infrastructure needs already solved. But the mindset of humanity tends to be binary. Good or bad. A or B. ICE or BEV. In some ways,...

    The items in DRIVER CONFIDENCE (V7X & Y) appear to almost be the same thing offered by Tesla except that Tesla may end up using servo motors for lane-keeping. Their price for the features are much...

    How far do you drive the 2015? Drive it down until gas engine comes on. That "full to empty" swing a few times will be needed to do better estimating.

    The range estimate is just that, as you...

    To follow the last posts of this thread, I also find my 2011 Volt to be well built and I think many 2011 owners have had good luck with reliability. I do hope to keep it through 2018 and maybe hit...

    If you call before the 6mo is up, they will eventually do it for $25 after bartering. I like it except when driving near trees, under bridges and so on. Strangely, works well in some parking...

    I would buy the prototype Bolt (the one in Orange) - that design is quite nice (out of Australia).

    I would not buy the car shown above in that link. Not a similar design shape-wise to the concept...

    Dealers are just that, dealers. Would a hot-dog vendor recommend healthier eating by telling you to go search out a salad instead?

    In terms of any EV revolution, GM and Ford face one huge...

    I think GM is working on a CUV plug-in but just won't divulge info. I wish they would do some talking or at least hinting about future models.

    Bought my 2011 in July of 2012.
    Have done 56k miles. Original tires, very little maintenance. Drives like new. I still have car payments for maybe another three years at 0%.

    No way I am doing...

    A full recharge is about 12.5-13 kWh. Various charging losses, heat resistance when it is warm, battery conditioning, etc.

    I haven't been charging a lot the last few months and our electric bill...

    Small pick up truck (S10 style) and Voltec in the Orlando would be big steps forward for reuse of the Voltec 2.0. It should be strong enough to do a FWD Equinox. A skateboard platform could run CUV...

    I think the VW Bulli would solve many of the OPs wants. Other than hauling long distance, if it is BEV. Well, without DCFC that is. With a charging network solution, might do it.

    I really want...

    KWh don't matter as miles Electrically driven. My 2011 gave me nearly 48 miles yesterday including 1/2 hour of stop and go traffic. Try that in an ICE. Your kwh gauge might show more if your...

    Two things the bolt should have. Yell at GM to try to make it happen.

    Those who bought during the first few months of Gen-1 sales really paid MSRP without much discount at all, I don't remember people talking discounts for a while.
