A test run on the efficiency of the Chevrolet Volt (GM +0.2%) goes smoothly for GigaOm writer Kevin Tofel. A full charge tapped out at 73.2 miles, costing $1.60 in gas and a token amount of electricity. Though critics lament the impracticality of long trips with EVs, the automaker continues to eye sub-markets such as college campuses, urban transit, or corporate complexes where lower fuel costs could attract buyers. On the global front, the Spark EV will be sold in Canada, Europe and South Korea.
