  • Should GM's All-New 2016 Chevrolet Volt Be Compared To The Tesla Model S?  [View article]
    Absolutely, as a soon to be new Volt owner, I in know way pretend my car will equal to a Tesla, that's just ludicrous! The Volt is indeed a EREV or PHEV, it's pure vanity to think of it as an EV.

    My purchase is purely based upon a 100 mile a day commute, then park and charge. I could buy a Tesla, but for a trip to LA, Seattle, Austin, frankly I'm going to fly anyway.

    actually for #3, I'm quite sure Volt 2 will still be higher than a Tesla w/r to repair costs, keep in mind the Volt 2's warranty will run out as well, I have almost 300K on my 2004 Prius and I have never had any warranty or out of warranty repair on the Hybrid (Synergy Drive) system, all repairs have been ICE motor or Drivetrain to wheel related, e.g., brakes and wheel bearing.

    I'll definitely report back, I don't ever see the day where I'd be a GM investor, but I'm good with being a consumer. Maybe if they spin off an EV division or something radical. I'm still looking for a good Volt Forum, kinda disappointed with Volt/Prius Chat and GM-Volt forums.

    Right on Dave_M, people really do need to consider their own economics, in my case, I met my goal drive the Prius to 300K miles and then retire it. Now on to the next car, Volt 2, after that I'll be in the market for the Tesla Model 4

    Well that's a straw man argument. I've driven 298k miles in a similarity sloping windshield and had two rock hits in both cases the repair was the liquid injection.

    Just curious when was the last time anyone saw a large SUV with a roof top carrier? I don't think I've ever seen a suburban with a carrier? Of course I'm in the Bay Area the largest EV market ...

  • Tesla: A Well-Deserved Fall From Grace  [View article]
    Maybe Grant, but not based on the reasoning you presented. Norway was one of the early adopters, although the original reason may have been economic, the reality is that Norway is at least as good a cold weather reality check as Canada. And guess what? The Model S passed with flying colors.

    So although range is certainly effected it is not impossible, BTW it appears that the LiOn battery is not the issues, more hot weather in that regard, rather the use of heat for passengers.

    This thread has a lot of good links to folks talking real-world Model S and the cold including salt.

    So contrary to Mutualcore; nothing but the facts!

    Yep, RS has a point, albeit we don't know the ASP to fix a margin ...

    Anecdotal evidence: When I put a deposit on my 2016 Volt (which was really a gimmick to get a car that the dealer had already ordered), the Volt 2 was sold out!

    Of course we don't really know how many were built for 2016, but this opening salvo, in limited states even, is already accounted for.

    Of course I still have the option to say "Ouch, that Heather Grey is u-ugly!" And the car can return to inventory, but it ain't gonna happen, I've been waiting 3 months.

    The Volt 2 sort of looks like a Hyundai,
