Sorry. Cleared out some space.OK, I see that now. Tried to PM you, but your box was full. Was also trying to get an email address for you.
Personally, I think people are reading too much into this. GM doesn't really have an incentive to reveal anything until after the $7,500 Tax credit steps down to $3,750. I don't think it's a coincidence that both Volt production and the Federal Tax Credit step down occur at the end of March. I'm expecting to hear some big news from GM by then.I'm very disappointed with the decision, however, if they plan to replace the Volt with an even better PHEV design, I'm fine with it. I plan to keep mine for a while because the older I get the less "fanboy" I become, but I think the Volt is an important transitional vehicle that helps bridge the gap between ICE and BEV. If not for the Volt, I'd still be driving an ICE vehicle. The Volt was affordable and allows me to drive 100% electric (minus BMM/EMM), allowed me to have one car for all the needs of the family, and allowed me to get an electric vehicle without spending well over $1000 to upgrade the electric service at my house (something I didn't have the money for at the time I got my Volt).
I would think as people get the EV itch, those would be common factors for other people too. Now that money is better, I'm starting to get the BEV itch. The Bolt almost does it for me, but I just can't handle the "honey, I shrunk the minivan" styling. If they'd make a sporty BEV compact, I'd buy it if the pricepoint was similar to the Bolt. I hope that's what GM is thinking!
