In any case, I try not to pay too much attention to the Volt. The whole EV1 situation permanently soured me to their fortitude for this product segment. If the oil companies drop gas back to $2/gallon will the Volt get canceled as Hummer sales pick back up again? The styling just doesn't work well for me either. We shall see what real world gas usage ends up being for Volt vs next gen Prius as well. Hopefully there are viable pure EV cars available when the Volt hits the market so I don't have to compromise with a another hybrid.
