    That guy seems to think the Volt is a 100% EV and not a hybrid. I wish comments could be added so people could address what he wrote.

    I find it interesting that IEEE Spectrum listed both the Volt and switch grass ethanol as technology failures. This guy's idea that CGN, or Propane, or ethanol will solve the problem is totally ignorant of where they come from and what they are used for currently. Electric cars represent a very sustainable future, though it will take a bit longer to get there, it is where we want to be.

    CNG is such a short-term temporary patch that it would be foolish to push it.
