Remember when the Chevy Volt was going to have only an electric engine?
Turns out, the Volt is merely GM’s version of a hybrid, though the state-capitalist organization protests that entirely accurate label. Accepting it would speak volumes both to the epic failures of General Motors and to the host of problems with the effort to preserve cars-first transportation by eventually converting vehicles to all-electric fueling.
The Volt will go “up to” 40 miles before its gas engine takes over, “though aggressive driving, along with extensive use of air conditioning, heat or headlights will lower that number.” Price? $40,000.
