GM had a perfect electric car called the E-V 1 15 yrs ago and they did not promote it like the Volt. Where would we be if we added 15 yrs technology to the E-V 1. I do not think GM wants to sell electric cars, it's just a gimmick to be different. If you want people to buy electric cars make them affordable and go more than 40 miles on a charge, 15 yrs ago they went 100 miles to a charge. Watch the documentary called "Who killed the electric car? and it will open your eyes. If we had electric cars that worked like they should considering the level of technology there is oil companies would be mad and oil is what drives this country.
