I recently got the documentary "Who Killed the Electric Car?" and it got me thinking...
Since GM is building the Volt, set to be released in 2010 as a 2011 model year, it might look really good, on a PR stand point, if they offered the very first "for purchase" Volts to former drivers of the EV-1.
As in..they let the former EV-1 drivers outright purchase the very first Volts available. No "Lease only" requirements....outright purchase, and maybe toss in..say 2 to 5 years worth of 'routine maintenance' like checking oil, wheel rotating and balancing, etc, to rectify how they handled the EV-1 situation.
Just my 2 cents
Wow, you are pretty generous with GM's money - how much are you going to throw into the kitty? It's not enough that GM is selling at a loss?
