    They might be, but these days, the math doesn't work due to gas prices like $1.65 in Missouri. Volt Gen II uses regular gas and in my area of .16 per kWh, and gas below $2.20, it is a wash...

    Where is electricity getting way more expensive? Grid power here is 2 cents per kWh lower now in 2015 than in 2010 when I priced out solar pv systems. Then in 2012 when the system went in, i...

    Chevy Lion. lithium Ion turned into a wildcat. But it whispers, not roars. Lions hunt by sneaking up quietly on their prey then pouncing. All cats do that, actually, and usually female lions do...

    Is shedding demand the real goal of a smart grid? What about cultural influence and weather patterns? I heard a story out of England based on the play time of certain soccer matches. That the grid...

    You can buy a nice used car and resell it after <n months> and not lose a lot if the choice holds its value for the time period.

    My wife and daughter do not like my Volt. Main reasons are A pillar and other visibility issues. Electricity does not trump visibility to those who live a rational life :).

    range is meaningless. My 35 mile EPA-rated range 2011 has given me 50 miles a few times.

    Tell us the usable kWh range. Then we can figure out our own range possibilities. I hope some day they...

    I have solar. I fully expect incentives like net metering to go away not only in CA but nationally. It cannot continue with the current design. Batteries need to come down in price substantially...

    I don't even use cabin heating in my volt until it gets below 35*F outside. My daughter who refuses to wear a coat does like the seat heater and some cabin heat at times.

    I quick charge my volt on long trips. I use supercharger stations. They do pump gasoline, however, at a rate of 150 miles per minute. Quite convenient.
