While Toyota sells kazillians of Prius the volt being a MUCH more practical design hasn't caught on moving us towards saving fuel in America.

You know the funny thing is a lot of hot rodders get all riled up thinking that America is going to make fuel illegal or something turning their hotrods into 3000lb paper weights. It isn't going to happen, not in any of our or our children's or grand children's life times. No, for me, every gallon I save on my daily commute or others commutes I see a gallon I will have for my Gran Sport or next hot rod.

You absolutely missed my point!!!

I'm not going to go into a long dissertation to prove my 'greenie weenie' statement either - except to say that this car is NOT what America or the world needs to reduce our dependency on carbonaceous based fuels. Go way back on this thread, I'm the OP, and you will see my points
