I've had the pleasure of using the Chevy Volt for a fathers day weekend getaway with my son Thomas. We are at the Michigan 400 nascar race at Michigan International Speedway. The ride has been smooth and quiet. We were able to get 65 kms on the pure battery charge. We are getting an average of 37 MPG and it is fortunate that there are no plug in stations available ... The technology is great and I look forward to when we can set up an infrastructure that will accommodate electric car technology.
