Chevrolet Volt Gets Priced

41k volt Forty-one thousand dollars. Time required to recharge the massive battery pack? Unless you are an early buyer who gets gifted one of the federal government’s $2,500+ home super-chargers (or buy one yourself): ten hours. Ten hours plugged in to move the thing “up to” 40 miles on electricity. That “up to” is there because using the stereo, lights, heater, or air conditioner — using the car, in other words — will reduce the all-electric range.

All this for a mere year’s worth of full-time exploited labor (more than that for women), or the price of three compact all-gasoline cars that get roughly the same gas mileage and make no huge new demands on the Earth’s limited supply of lithium.

Said it before: ROFLMFAO.

  1. Interesting, we’re having the exact same useless stuff served to us here in France (mostly with Renault), and people get all excited about these new “clean” cars. Nobody I know seem to even question the problems raised (electricity demands, ecological cost of building, crappy and almost useless mileage).

  2. Yes, this cars-first thing is international, and certainly ascendant (if not as dominant) in Europe. Personally, I think it figures that people swallow the propaganda. All our institutions and media are constantly pushing it on people.
