    "full-electric Chevrolet Volts"

    Full-electric? Really?


    Other than that - good article.

    to be fair for many people they are fully electric as silly as it seems. Many people never or rarely use the gas ... so even though they are carrying around a big unused gas engine they are only using the electric portion of their car most of the time.

    I wonder how the weight of the Volt's engine compares to say the 85kW battery in the S?

    Owning both, I can say I appreciate the range extender in the Volt. As an engineer I would love the challenge of creating a range extender + battery that was competitive with a huge battery but eliminated the range issue.

    When did this turn into (yet another) EV terminology thread?

    Okay no one took my hint, so the hybrid terminology went to Pure BEV Dogma
