After 2 Years, 3 months and 4 days (Who's counting
) my Volt finally met another Volt on Stud Road Knox a Red one.
Not only that after the turn on Burwood Hwy we drove side by side, managed a couple of waves back to the driver and a pedestrian toot.
If your in America you will never understand how special today was - as here the Volts are a very rare indeed.
To have two side by side on the road is truly a Kodak moment.
Also Drove past my purchasing dealer tonight - which out of my way on an errand tonight and the Volt brand on the GM dealer pillar has gone.
To those fellow Australians reading this and didn't get one, you have missed out on a truly amazing EV ride - plus excellent fuel economy when used as city car eg. still get 0.5L /100km, 0.6L/100km lifetime.
Insurance is better when compared to the Leaf or BMW, So Volt drivers must be safer drivers
What other affordably Australian retail car can you buy that has all the benefits of an EV - but without limitations?
Only the Volt, the BMW is not good as the Volt in EREV mode especially.
Very disappointed in fellow Australians for not purchasing many more examples of this brilliant product.
I still don't think price and interior space was that much of a factor as many have bought outdated European branded cars with underpowered engines and those have small claustrophobic interiors compared to the Volt.
Very happy with my Volt
GM was of to good start in Australia, but I'm afraid all the hard work and education on Australians will pay off down the line to it's competitors - unless they have a plan.
Time will tell.
