"The GM executives who conceived the Volt as a leap-frog over the Prius -- well before the Obama administration even took office -- always thought of it as a marketing tool as much as a regular car, and justified the additional costs as a way to burnish GM's image. The Volt works as advertised; some owners have reported driving 1,000 miles using only home charging between fill-ups, and the car most traded in for a Volt has been a Toyota Prius."
But this one time I agree with Ransom. Time to cut the loss. It is very hard to justify this as a advertising campaigh for GM
