Hello Folks,

I'm not advertising for the Chevrolet Volt, but, just like to spread the information to clear out the ill-informed people out there.

I had this car for over three months and driven all in EV mode without having to use the gas thus far! You can drive between 38-50 miles on EV alone! Based on a 11 cent/Kwh, it costs about 0.02 dollars/miles versus gasoline which is 0.13 dollars/mile.

I know what everybody is thinking, why should I buy an expensive EV where there's more affordable gas cars out there? Charging stations are increasingly becoming more available. And, you can use your regular 120V outlet, however, that takes a longer time to charge. If you install a 400-500 dollar 240V 30Amp level 2 charger in your garage, or outside your building you can charge your car within a few hours instead of charging it overnight. Plus, many work places lets you charge at work!

Benefits:

Less oil consumption on cars which means less oil imports from foreign countries, and more can be used for heating homes (hint: which will lower the price due to more supply).

Reduce smog.

Lower maintenance since EV cars rarely require oil changes, if it needs one.

Very quiet!

Instant torque without reving up the engine to the RPM levels to get maximum torque, which is the downside to having to rev the engine higher to get the torque (increase wear and tear).

On another note, if you can afford a gas guzzler like an Audi, why not re-consider an EV car?

Like to get an idea of what people think.

If you can afford real car, with real performance and real engine sounds, why even think about EV ? You're making a point that it's cheaper to operate - great, but I'd rather spend more money for pure pleasure of driving. For commuting, I use bicycle which is way more fun that any EV...

Sure, too bad I can get something that 5 times more fun for half the price. Not mentioning the engine sound...
