Since I got solar panels installed, I have been thinking about a plug-in car. I started with the Chevy Spark all electric, thinking I would just get an around town runabout, then I thought maybe I would be better off with the larger Nissan Leaf. After a few unpleasant dealer contacts, I have sworn off Nissan. Now my wife is involved, and wants something more like a 'real car', and wants bells and whistles too.
So, my search is leading me to the Volt, which plugs in, and has a motor also, like some other plug in hybrids, except it goes a lot further on electricity than others. Prices have dropped 5 grand, plus the dealers are discounting, plus $9,000 in rebates in CA.
Back to the question. Does anyone have one, and what do you think of it. Recommend it? Hate it? Please share.
PS: My adult daughter who lives with us just bought a Hyundai Sonata Hybrid. Really nice car, with a 10 year guarantee, and lifetime on the batteries. It is NOT a plug in, though. I want a plug in because our panels are producing more power than we use, and the excess might as well go in the 'gas tank'.
