Can you see Obama driving around Hawaii or wherever it is he will retire to?

I can't. Though he would look funny with those jug ears crammed into a Volt...

That's because he's worried about the hydrogen filling station blow-ups and Volts bursting into flames in people's garages ..so he's giving them at least that long to make sure they are safe..

Im optimistic about the future of GM"s electric cars to see larger  capacity gains. As long as the other necessary factors don't suffer It could see 300 mile pure evs by 2015, rather than - 35-40 miles.

As there legacy cost declines this company should be a force again to reckon with in the future..

President Obama gives the KOD to the Chevy Volt ..Obama say's he would buy a Chevy Volt in 5 more years ...and poof ..two day's later ..

General Motors announces that it has temporarily suspended production of its Volt electric car.....

GM announced to employees at one of its facilities today, that it was halting production of the beleaguered electric car for five weeks and temporarily laying off 1,300 employees.....

We better beef up our power grid if we are going to go to electric cars....its antiquated and can barely support the demand we have now. Especially in the summer months.

and what fuel(s) are used to make electricty anyway?

The Volt a car for the 1%'ers........

The hybrid gas-electric vehicle gets 25 miles on a full, overnight charge and costs around $40,000. To date, GM has sold around 10,000 vehicles. To put it in perspective, the Chevy Corvette has a sticker price of $49,600.
