LOL! Very funny, Tom! But not really- the Volt has been taking hits from multiple sides ever since it rolled out, and the concerns raised by the NHTSA were way overblown. There are many groups, for one reason or another (though I find such opposition singularly lacking in reason), that want to squash EVs. Funny how you never hear about the hundreds (or is it thousands?) of deaths caused by the quarter-of-a-million ICE fires every year here in the US. Talk about biased reporting!
Yes, I am biased in favor of EVs- they are our future. But I also want them safe and well-made. I would never, for example, suggest someone buy a Zap EV. But for those that are well-made and safe- well, they are a hard sell as it is right now- too expensive, too little range, too few recharge cycles- but we need cars like the Volt and the Leaf to sell now, even in small numbers, to pave the way for our future.
