I've had a Chevy Volt for about 6 months and as I'm almost always on battery power it's completely sold me on electric vehicles. The Volt is a very well engineered and built car, and my hat's off to GM for a superb job with this vehicle. I never thought I'd buy a GM car but this one is in a class by itself. I've not yet put any gas in the Volt and it's now become a game to drive so that the gas generator never turns on. So for me, even though with the gas generator the car is good for over 300 miles, with the Volt there's a different kind of range anxiety -- not driving a distance that will turn on the generator. Most of time I drive less than 25 miles a day, so this is not an issue. But when I contemplate a trip that I know will result in consuming gas I want to avoid it. Enter the S. Put in my reservation last week, and my reservation sequence number is in the high 8,000s. When my turn comes, I'll be buying the Performance 85kw version, with almost all the options. For me, the 300 mile range will meet almost all of my needs, as even as my long drives rarely go more than 300 miles in single day. Yes, I know that at highway speeds the range will be lower, but I can manage that. I was told by Tesla that I'd have a year's wait but I'm hoping some people ahead of me in line will drop out and Tesla will ramp up production faster than they're assuming now. Fingers crossed. For me a year is too long to wait for this revolutionary car.
