Like Solyndra, this is another Obama waste of tax payer money.

Another Obama green energy fiasco. Face it folks it don't work. But do nothing about fuel costs!


Is Chevy selling them in Utah?

OH, I just have to refrain from any negative comments about the Volt. I just hope in ten months this downward spiral will change.

Don't write off electric vehicles just yet. The problem is that GM and Nissan's products and marketing have been all wrong from the start.

The car companies should have launched electric vehicles designed for specific target audiences that would appreciate cheap transport and would be willing to take the risk -- utilities (for their fleets; similar to how Questar has natural gas service vehicles) and delivery companies (UPS, FEDEX). I read that both UPS and FEDEX have been experimenting with electric trucks and have found the cost savings very worthwhile! Why can't GM make electric trucks for them?

Creating an electric service vehicle for utilities, which would love to use their own cheap electricity (wholesale) rather than buy gasoline for their fleets of trucks and cars, would have been a better move.
