I have a very good friend who is retired NASA engineer who made long life batteries for satelites. With the care GM gives the battery it is likely to last 14 to 16 years. Pretty much life of the car. It is temperature controlled and never over or under charged. All of these things are good for Liion batteries.

Sure they want a huge vehicle that gets 40 MPG. Physics just doesn't allow it.

Apparently you are not noticing them. There are quite a few Volts purchased in Michigan including mine. I was the first Volt sold in Michigan to an end user.

Volt sells as well as at least half the cars on the market today. Would you have half the cars on the market be shut down? I don't think so. The Volt is the finest car I have ever owned or driven. Just because you haven't bought one doesn't make it a bad investment. Like I said, I can do the math. 2 cents per mile makes alot of sense.

Only those Americans who can do the math involved with total cost of operation are good candidates for a Volt purchase. I own two of them and yes I did the math. Edward Ellyatt
It takes 4 times as much electricity to create the hydrogen from water as it does to just fill up a battery and drive on it. 4 times as many miles on battery than on hydrogen...no brainer.
And yet they are comming out with the Toyota RAV-4 EV. Go figure.
My tax credit (yes my money I paid in taxes) not your money I spent when I got it back after a year of owning my Volt to help the economy. You're welcome.
I know a Volt owner who pulls a trailer for the little time he needs to haul 4 X 8 sheets of plywood.
I drive many more miles than 35 per day. 33,000 in 2 years on electricity. And for my $35,000 I love driving a luxury ride smoothly and in silence. So far I have saved $7000.00 in fuel and unrequired preventive maintence so in 10 years I pay for my entire car not just the difference between it and a $22,000.00 econobox. Now who is the chump.
