Default Chevy Volt could earn 100 mpg EPA rating

General Motors Corp. said Friday it has reached a preliminary
agreement with the California Air Resources Board about how to
classify its Chevy Volt in terms of emissions standards that could
allow the extended-range electric vehicle to attain the 100-miles-per-
gallon rating.

GM spokesman Dee Allen said the rating is far from set, stressing that
what has been agreed to on a preliminary basis is that the Volt would
be classified as an extended-range electric vehicle for the purpose of
fuel-economy ratings.

If that is made certain, he said, then the Volt, due out in November
2010, could would likely receive a rating of 100 miles per gallon or
better.

And it'll only cost $40 grand. only. I wouldn't even waste my time looking
at one in a showroom. And precious few people with the sense God gave geese
will buy one.

No way. No How. No rebates. GM is having daydreams. If they were to put
out an electric or hybrid for the same money as Civic or Prius hybrids, they
might be in the ballpark, but at 40 big ones? uh uh.

...besides...it's GM. A new owner will be lucky if it doesn't fall
apart a day after it's warranty ends.

It seems like an expensive way to adjust driving habits. We all could
save a lot of gas with some computer controlled equipment on board.
Acceleration rates, top speed, smart climate control. How about car to
car real time information. Yield signs instead of stop signs.
Intelligent stoplights with real time information exchange with
vehicles, intelligent speed control that would automatically set the
speed limit of a car by sending signals to the car's brain and
automatically space the vehicles apart? A lot could be done to level
out the peak demands of power and wasteful braking.

Interesting approach to improving EPA fuel economy ratings - don't count
fuel economy when the ICE is running.
