After 5 years cohabitating here at the GM Volt site, I'm an owner. Gave away my Buick Regal and bought this. I still have my Lincoln MKX, which believe this or not was bought for "good gas mileage" getting 20 MPG. Seems almost like an gas alcholic now. But for Winter driving, this car will keep me feeling safe. I am looking at trading off for a Tesla S, which has the airlift system. Tesla appears to have decided on this feature to raise the chassis by 1-1/2 inches as high as to 8", meaning you can go through deep snow, over dippy driveways. Of course, it's real wheel drive, with a center weight in the car. Pros and cons to everything. Still, if the Volt goes well this Winter, that my be a reasonable 2nd EV. I just don't feel like gas cars at all - it's a military thing for me.
NO FOREIGN OIL is my preference. All my power tools are now electric.
