I like the concept of the Chevy Volt. Yes the Prius is an excellent car but the fellow talks about the 36mpg that the Volt gets using gasoline vs. the 50 that the Prius gets. Well, most people would not even use any gas here in the North East with a 40 mile electric range because most trips are short and most commutes are short. The only change I would make to a volt is to change out the gas engine for a small DIESEL. They get about 30% better mileage than gas engines. My VW Jetta TDI gets 52mpg going 70 on long trips.
