August Set To Be Best Month Yet For Chevy Volt Sales

$6 a gallon gas will just make people drive less. They're not going to trade their car in for an all electric car that costs $38,000 to save a couple bucks per gallon on gas. The Volt is the best of both worlds. The Leaf is not selling because it doesn't make sense. It's not practical, it's far too expensive, and it only does one thing-commute. What's the range going to be in five years, 40 miles? 30 miles? The Leaf will not outsell much of anything and this was obvious from the start. Obvious to all but EVangelists. A car that gets only 70 miles per charge, takes at least eight hours to charge on 220V, and costs $35,000-38,000 plus another $2000 for a home charge station. Yeah, that'll bring in customers in droves.
