I agree as well. Battery prices will become slightly cheaper over time while their energy storage capacity will gradually rise. The only way this dynamic will change would be a broadly applicable, technological breakthrough that is fast to production. This is highly unlikely, but not impossible.
I am not at a point where styling doesn't matter. I've stated before that everyone will have their own personal reasons for buying any car. I only hope people make their decisions based on facts, and not misinformation or propaganda. Some may be based on sheer economics, and that's cool. For me, I will only drive a GM vehicle, and I will not drive an ugly car(IMO). I spend too much time in it to be uncomfortable, unhappy, embarrassed, or endangered. Those are my buttons, and the Volt will be perfect for me. Plus, I get to reduce my gas bill. All good for me!
