Commented On: Why I Bought A Prius Plug-In, Not A Volt Or Leaf: A Reader's Choice


Green Car Reports 0 Views 110 comments
I plan on buying a new plug-in later this year. I like minimal constraints (lack of horsepower, having to charge too frequently, etc) and I commute just over 35 miles a day. I also like my weekend road trips without having to worry about charging. I have access to cheap renewable Northwest electricity so charging is not a big issue. I saw a Volt driving down the highway the other day and, to me, it definitely looked slicker than the Prius or Leafs I've seen. I'm pretty sold on the Volt at about $33,000 and with the price of gas increasing the way it has been my savings will increase at a greater rate than with a Prius.

Up to this point demand has not been the issue but supply has been. This obviously is no longer the case and Volt will start moving past Leaf as long as GM supply enough cars. Oh, but this site, being the non-biased site it is, is already aware of this.

It's nice to know that this site still has its bias against GM. The fact that the article has to make the sales battle out as a rah rah event between the hometown favorite and the foreign import speaks volumes. Why can't the Volt be given credit for being the better car and hence having higher sales numbers based on technical merit. Anybody who would blow 30,000+ on a car that only runs 70 miles on a charge is either nuts or has serious cash to blow. I could careless if Saddam Hussien made the car; if it's better it's better, end of story.
