Some Interesting Specs

The Volt has a battery-powered electric motor that can run the car for up to 40 city miles on a single charge. Beyond that, a gasoline-powered, one-liter, three-cylinder engine can generate electricity to power the car and replenish the battery, with a range of up to 640 miles, GM said. The car can be fully recharged by plugging it in to a 110-volt outlet for about six hours, and the gasoline engine can get about 50 miles per gallon when producing electricity to run the car, GM said. The turbocharged engine also can run on E85 ethanol.

40 miles isn't too bad for an everyday commute too and from work. I might sound crazy, but 40 is too little. Somewhere around 60-80 miles would be a whole lot better.

Its good they made a backup generator for the volt, no need to worry about being stuck on the road with no power.

Good info here!
