GM now has the opportunity to develop a plug in electric 4 wheel drive SUV. One that can operate totally on 100% electric (AKA Volt System) for 75-100 miles and a super fuel efficient gasoline engine (generator) that can obtain 40+ mpg on 87 octane when operating on gas when the battery charge is gone or operating in "hold" mode.

Here in Northwestern Oregon and other places in the country storms can and will knock out electric power for days, and in some cases even weeks. At least with a Volt or a similar SUV platform, one can operate on just gas, in the event of a power outage. We keep about 30 gal's of regular gas in our garage in 5 gal cans so that we can run our generator to keep the fridge and freezer from defrosting, and to run our cars. We also keep at least 1/2 or more gas in both gas tanks of our 2010 Prius and our 2016 Volt as well.
