What does it say about the US auto industry when their most hyped product is one you can't buy for at least two years?
And they now say the Chevy Volt might cost upwards of $40,000 once it actually hits showrooms. And the design is scaled back from the concept model to look more like...an Impala? NYT says it looks like a Saturn.
Didn't GM already have an expensive electric car like, 12 years ago?
Beating on the US auto industry is like kicking someone when they're down, I know. And all those jobs are vital to the US economy, especially here in the Midwest. But seriously, what are you doing for me now? The Volt saga is almost a parody of itself.
