LOLWhy would anyone buy a Volt at $40K when Honda will come out with a hybrid for sub $20K? I WOULD buy the Volt only if it looked like the concept. Now that it looks like a generic Honda Civic I'll wait for the other car companies to come out with something better(and they'll be cheaper too.)
Let's do the math:
If a car is driven 15,000 miles at year at a hybrid fuel consumption of 40 mpg, your average hybrid car will cost you $2250.00 a year at $6.00 a gallon.
Look at those numbers people. A hybrid would cost you $2250.00 in gas per year @ 15,000 miles per year.
It would take a Chevy Volt about 9 years to give you any sort of savings, and this is assuming you spend $0.00 on gas with the Volt.
HMMMM....$40K volt to save ZERO money for the first nine years. What a rip off.
