I live in Southern California and FINALLY saw a Volt on the road for the first time, just a couple weeks ago. All those California Volt buyers must be in San Francisco. SoCal is a BIG TIME commuter area and you're lucky if you drive less than 35 miles per day (which is the average distance a Volt can travel on one charge, after that you're average drops to 37 mpg). After that you're average drops to 37 mpg. For $40,000 you could get a much better car for half the money. Like a Ford Fusion hybrid which I own and I LOVE!!
