Great read!!!

You don't get it, the Volt is not a Prius wannabe, it out does the Prius. It is larger,(About the size of a Camary or Accord) and it's only purpulsion system for the first 40 miles will be the batteries...
the motor will only serve one purpose, to charge the batteries, not to drive the car on. the Prius can't do any of those things right now.
