    When asked how it drives, all he could say was "it's a little crisper than the Chevy Volt"? Faint praise indeed.

    The more appropriate comparison should have been whether the rebadge of the Chevrolet Volt to Cadillac ELR will be more successful than the Chevrolet Cavalier rebadge into the Cadillac Cimarron. I am not bashing the Volt or ELR, but I do not think the ELR has a chance at their price point.

    So it has an all-EV range of ~35 miles and gets UP TO 35MPG when it's on premium gasoline?
    So the battery, charger, motor, inverter is basically good for replacing 1 gallon of gas per trip?

    And it takes 5 hours to charge the batteries up for the long ~35 mile trip???

    Here's my amazed face --> :-|
