Yes, it will find a niche market of over-paid greenies willing to live with its significant limitations and shortcomings to make a public statement that they drive a car powered by coal. :o)

Thanks for the article, not sure if you have heard of GM's EV1 made way back in the 1990's? This shows that the Volt is by no means a daring and new concept made by GM. It is one of pure desperation, from a company that for so long has had the potential to continue the daring and new development it started with the EV1 but yet has not. Regards

We should be fearful of the success of the Volt. Our Electric generation capacity is near 100%. The only way to bring more electric generation on line quickly is the most expensive generation available - probably gas turbine. As a country we MUST decide on the intelligent use of nuclear generation and get this moving before electric cars will ever make sense on a large scale.
