Proud Chevy Volt driver here... I don't think pure EV is ready for prime time which is why GM is fully behind range extended EV and doing the Spark to appease out of touch Californians.
Most of America could not drive an EV, the range is not sufficient and the cost of batteries to provide sufficient range for additional people is still too high.
Car manufacturing, like all businesses, is supposed to be profitable (that's where the money for R&D comes from, profits). EVs are too expensive for prime time right now.
I will gladly drive my Volt each day as it saves me HUGE dollars on gas and is economically sound for me and my driving style. (City commute of 8.3 miles each way)
