By the Stats the people who bought volt bought it (it appears) because the EV range is within their commute range meaning to me , the Bolt could out sell the Volt by about 500% IMO

Pinball have you found any Stats on its projected sales numbers ?

No I have not seen those numbers yet.

The Volt is the number one selling plug-in in America. But the leaf is closing in on them because so many buyers are waiting on the 2016 model. That is one bad thing about promoting the new one so much.


Of all the stuff I read I thought this on had the most insight. I actually agree with them.

Default First post-- I am very excite (as Borat would say)

Hey guys, first post here. I was planning an "intro" post when move into a new home, but the current topic is too interesting. I just have to jump in. (I'm coming from ecomodder.com)

Suffice it to say, for now, I've become interested in life & energy efficiency over the last few years. My fiance drives a 2012 Sonic (32 mpg) and I have a 2014 Cruze (41 mpg). My plan over the next few years is to upgrade my Cruze to an Elio and get her a used Volt. Used Volts are selling for an absolute song...

This stuff is great. America will really have the oil producers by the balls if we keep improving efficiency.

Andy

Welcome
You are correct. A used Volt prices are very low and it has proven to be a very dependable car.
We love ours good luck.

If everything turns out as expected, Nissan is really going to have to up their game to keep up. The Bolt looks much better too.

Tesla has been talking about a 200 mile + 30K after tax break for a while now. GM flexed their muscles and actually beat them to it.
Granted it is not a Tesla but they have a big dealer network if you have an issue.
I hope you see others following quickly. I hope they sell well cheap gas prices will not help that much.

I think this was Tesla's plan all along, to stimulate the EV industry in general.

If Tesla got out-Tesla-ed it is a feather in their bonnet.
