Low Voltage

Apparently that Volt I saw was more than a bit lucky. There have been less than a thousand sold in America! Less surprising, Chevy has sold about five times as many Volts as Nissan has sold Leaves(Leafs?).

I still hold out hope for the Volt. It is still getting good reviews. I would buy one myself if I wasn't so cheap. It really would prop up my industry and since you can get a separate meter for it the electricity will mostly come from a low tier and be a lot cheaper than gas.

The Leaf was silly from the start though, no one wants a car that costs over $30,000 but can only drive for 73 miles. Maybe if it cost $5000 I would consider it as a spare car, but that is about it.
