The Volt is not an EV1. It's got room for 4 plus cargo and essentially unlimited range as long as you can buy gasoline, PLUS it has all-electric capability when you're driving under 40 miles between charges, PLUS it meets 2008 crash and emissions standards and will be a mass-produced vehicle.I'm not sure why this car is so newsworthy or exciting. GM had an electric car in the 70s that they destroyed and in the 70s we had a Dodge Omni that got 50 mpg. Now the US should be excited over cars that get 36-40! I don't get it.
