The number one misconception has got to be that the Volt is a pure electric vehicle. People accept a car that runs either on electricity or gasoline without a second thought, but a car that can run on both takes some explaining.
GM just released an ad that attempts to explain why running out electricity will not leave you stranded, in a scorching desert full of snakes no less.
"I wouldn't mind the whole electric car concept, if hybrids as they originally were had a backup, in other words, like gas."
