Top Gear Likes the Volt!?!
Wow, Jeremy Clarkson and the Top Gear crew are notorious haters of anything both automotive and green, I fully expected a scathing review. Not so. This was posted on the Top Gear web site.
"In short, the Volt is a very pleasant surprise, proving that loving EVs doesn't mean you have to be a slave to them. At the very least, cars should offer a sense of unbounded possibility, which, thanks to pitiful range and little resources to sustain them, most EVs don't. This does."
"The world doesn't tumble out of the rear window when you prod the accelerator - 0-31mph takes 3.1 seconds - but it's endearingly pokey. That's 0.7 seconds slower to 50 km/h than the new Audi TT, and in complete silence."
