GM's Volt

Regarding the new Chevy Volt, David Burge notes:
Dance, hipster marionettes! Dance to the jaunty, infantile Sesame Street folk guitar beat, thinly warbling the Gaia-saving virtues of your eco-appliance, designed by law school engineering experts in Washington DC. Maintain your vacant smile and perhaps you will be issued extra rations of driving privileges.



$41,000 (minus $7000 for compliant citizen tax credit) for a car that get less gas mileage than my 08 Corolla (I'm averaging 43mpg city and highway) and without the batteries to worry about.
