Electric cars are the wave of the future! In fact, you should probably go buy a Chevy Volt right now. The only problem? The cars don’t work.
During a recent car show, the Chevy Volt wouldn’t start during the demonstration.
“Well, here's the latest, General Motors lobbied for $7,500 tax refund for all Bayers for their Chevy Volt, under the premise that it was producing the first all‑electric mass production vehicle,” Glenn read from Forbes magazine.
“Sitting in a Volt that would not start at the Detroit auto show, Forbes said a GM engineer swore to me that the internal combustion engine in the machine only served as a generator kicking in when overnight charged Lithium ion battery began to run down,” he continued.
“GM revised downward its estimate how far [the Volt] would go before the gas engine would fire up and now it could be 10 to 25 miles,” he finished.
“It's electric unless you're driving in it,” Pat pointed out.
“That might be one way to describe it. In its most negative way, that might be one way to describe it,” Glenn said.
“While it's idling, it's virtually totally almost completely almost electric,” Pat joked. “Unless you rev the engine.”
