Funny how the show's host has some of the same reservations we come up against: it's too heavy, complex, costly. Then, he's taken for a ride and quickly changes his mind. Finally, the expert driver goes out and sets a lap record in it (for speed) just like the Volt is setting records for mpg, efficiencies, and smiles per miles.
Well, the article states 16 miles and up to 93 mph solely on electricity, which is better than almost any other plug-in hybrid on the road. Also, keep in mind that this is a sports car, so all-electric range isn't its first priority.
