You get what you pay for. There's really only five reasonable choices in the alternative fuel segment excluding hybrids based off existing cars. You can have outdated, inferior tech in the Prius and HS250h, pathetic performance from the Insight, or impracticality from the Leaf. You pay less, but you're making compromises left and right.

You may pay more for Volt but you get a vastly better product. Americans need to wake up and realize that's the direction the industry is heading. Look at the Cruze and Focus. Both fairly expensive for their segments, but both class-leading vehicles that destroy the import competition in terms of features and technology. I mean, the new Civic doesn't even come with a radio in its bargain-priced base model.
The new Civic doesn't even get recommended by Consumer Reports, possibly the most biased automotive news source out there. That says something.
