So the obvious question is; how large is the gas tank going to be?Welcome to the forums!
Long distance driving shouldn't be a problem. It should be able to take you from point A to point B just like a normal car. The only problem with long distance driving is that GM recently announced the Volt will have a much smaller gas tank than originally estimated (400 miles total).
That means if you start out with a full charge and a full tank of gas, your first 40 miles will be all electric, your next 360 miles will be gas, and then you will have to stop for gas every 360 miles thereafter.
That was the whole idea of the Volt. That it could be used on long trips. It would be cheaper to take Greyhound unless you have to have a car in New England. I would say fly, but I will no longer put up with TSA unless I have to travel internationally.What the issues with driving a long distance? For example, I live in Florida will the Volt be feasible to drive to New England and back once a year?
