Chevy Volt: Solyndra on Wheels

To go 13000+ miles I have used 96 gallons of gas. I get 40 miles a charge Mar-Nov and 30 miles per charge on cold Winter days. That's why my cost to go to work is about 55-65 cents in Winter and 40-45 cents in Summer. More battery energy is needed in Winter. The average for the year for my driving will be 35+ miles/charge.
"I absolutely love my Chevy Volt."

That's what the smug guy in the TV commercial says when he's praising the virtues of his plug-in hybrid and boasting that he hasn't seen a gas pump in months.

You might love your Chevy Volt, too -- if you could afford to buy one.

The GM Volt, aka the Green Edsel, is not just an overly engineered, overly expensive, overweight and impractical car than runs on electricity and gasoline.

It's a Solyndra on Wheels. The Volt only exists because it's been so heavily discounted by GM...
