Remove politics from your mind and check the numbers here.

Eric Bolling (Fox Business Channel's Follow the Money) test drove the Chevy Volt at the invitation of General Motors.

For four days in a row, the fully charged battery lasted only 25 miles before the Volt switched to the reserve gasoline engine.
Eric calculated the car got 30 mpg including the 25 miles it ran on the battery. So, the range including the 9 gallon gas tank and the 16 kwh battery is approximately 270 miles. It will take you 4 1/2 hours to drive 270 miles at 60 mph. Then add 10 hours to charge the battery and you have a total trip time of 14.5 hours. In a typical road trip your average speed (including charging time) would be 20 mph.

According to General Motors, the Volt battery hold 16 kwh of electricity. It takes a full 10 hours to charge a drained battery.

The cost for the electricity to charge the Volt is never mentioned so I looked up what I pay for electricity. I pay approximately (it varies with amount used and the seasons) $1.16 per kwh.

16 kwh x $1.16 per kwh = $18.56 to charge the battery. $18.56 per charge divided by 25 miles = $0.74 per mile to operate the Volt using the battery.

Compare this to a similar size car with a gasoline engine only that gets 32 mpg. $3.19 per gallon divided by 32 mpg = $0.10 per mile.

The gasoline powered car cost about $15,000 while the Volt costs $46,000.

So GM wants us to pay 3 times as much for a car that costs more that 7 times as much to run and takes 3 times as long to drive across country.

REALLY?

But you have to take into account how much saving the environment is worth!

After all, that good clean electricity doesn't pollute the air.

(Of course, all the coal they burn at the electric plant does, but...)

This what Snopes has to say about VOLT

In an effort to get to the truth, I rechecked this with 'SNOPES'. They 'adjusted' the mileasge/cost numbers and, according to THEIR figures, the Volt WAS more economical to operate.

Snopes calculation for fuel cost came out to 7 cents per mile for the Volt, vs 11 cents per mile for the new car getting 32 mpg using only gasoline.

Therefore, the Volt is obviously more economical per mile by a whopping 2/3 which calculates to 4 cents.

I took it one step further than Snopes and factored in the cost of both automobiles. Not having access to intricate details such as maintenace costs, or average driving distances, resale value, etc, I did it very simply.

I used the price of each car, NEW, and depreciated both of them to ZERO.

According to the article...........

Volt= $46,000

Gas only guzzler (that gets 32 mpg) = $15,000

Using these numbers, the Volt will surpass the 'Guzzler' after a mere 750,000 miles of driving.
