For years I've been a fan of electric cars. In 2004 I purchased a Toyota Prius and I love it. But, now GM may be trumping Toyota with their Volt.
GM has now officially approved production of the Volt. You should be able to add one to your garage by the end of 2010. The Volt is expected to travel 40 miles on all-electric and then can keep going at about 50mpg on various fuels via its on-board generator. The best of both worlds. I say bring it on!
