    This review is by Lyle Dennis the guy who runs GM-Volt.com.
    See more of his Roadster photos here: Miscellaneous - a set on Flickr


    Apparently he thinks it's "Tight!"

    Somehow, I found this video hilarious.

    I am glad to see Lyle is a genuine EV fan. I had initially wondered if he was some sort of GM backed Volt shill but he seems to be the "real deal".

    Props to Tesla for loaning him the car for the day!

    I had to laugh at the bit where he tries to pull away with the car in neutral and the video jumps to the next scene. "Take two!"

    There is a good write up on GM-Volt.com. I think it is fair to say that his writing skills are a lot better than his presenting skills (but that probably goes for all of us). This nicely summarises his thoughts:
