    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.

    Economically, best Volt deal is a...

    Street lamp? No. Top floor of a parking garage? much better idea.
    In europe, they seem to have less parking garages than in the USA.

    Airports really need to lead the way into adding dozens or...

    It should help. Otherwise, I was a little worried about a slow "start up" for the Volt Gen II and then media climbing all over that with "can't sell it" stories.

    My next door neighbor drove his pickup over to HD today, in fact. Saw him in the lot. He was carrying out a little bag. His commuter car was in his garage. I think he likes the feeling of driving...

    Most people that buy a truck do not need it. It sure would be nice to have an easy rental service to rent trucks for the few times a year people actually need a truck.

    Keep the Honda. Wait until about 2017-2018 and buy a used 2015 outright for $16000.

    I plan on keeping my 2011 Volt until at least 2018. Leasing is fine if you don't mind doing the dance every...

    They get about $14-16K at auction. Offer $17,500 and see if they go for it.

    Equinox: 29,456 22,695 +29.8% growth for May

    That is 29K units sold in the USA in a month.

    WHY CAN'T CHEVY put a voltec in this? I think that would outsell the Volt itself.

    I have that (still) even after having the Volt guy at my shop take a look at it. It's some form of heat shield resonating. It makes the car sound un-sophisticated (at best) when it happens but it...

    Mitsubishi is bringing the PiHV Outlander to the USA.

    I wish GM would, build a CUV Voltec. With Gen 2 the stronger engine seems like it could push at least a small CUV setup.

    One thing to consider, driving a paid-off car can be very satisfying. Would you consider a used Gen 1 Volt or do you have sights set only on the Gen 2?

    They actually made the combination of electric and engine even better with this new combination. It is a step forward even if it confuses some people. I think it is also a detriment for the Volt. ...

    Downloading software updates is more about legal issues and other hacking stuff than complexity or "hard to do" stuff. I'm sure if GM's lawyers and management get out of the way, they can do what...

    I got 42 the other day - with 6 miles remaining (two green bars). In my 2011.
    41 psi tire pressure, 40-45 mph country roads. Perfect weather (70*F and low humidity and wind).

    For me, I ended up buying the 2011 in July of 2012 using all those extra incentives. For roughly $35,500 minus 3500 state rebate, a givaway 1500 bump in GM Card earnings (total of 2500) and the 7500...
