TQO # 87 - The
absolute failure of Obama's Government Motors Volt
Obama's Government Motors would develop an electric car that stunk
so bad, they had to throw a gas motor in it so it would not look
like a total failure. After ingesting tens of billions of tax
dollars, borrowed from China and Japan.
the Chevrolet Volt can go a whopping 40 miles between charges and
costs $41,000+ AFTER even more government StimUwaste, I mean tax
credits. When I heard it could only go 40 miles per charge I
recognized that as insane because I know from our own commuting
experience that would not be enough to get to work and back.
designing this vehicle, which is a HYBRID, couldn't they at least
the amazing power of the Internet and the words "average length
consumer trip work miles" I was able to pull up secret research
from 2005, on the 1st three pages, without using wikileaks!
I did not use the Volt wiki page, because it lies on figures. Then
again, Soros who holds Obama's leash funds wikipedia. Do a Yahoo
search using .edu to find the truth if these links are not enough.
Consumer - Washington Post
3.3 million Americans travel 50 miles or more to work one way,
according to the Travel Survey."
Average Commute Round-Trip-Gallup
annual Work and Education survey finds that American workers report
spending an average of 46 minutes commuting to and from work in a
typical day. Workers at higher income levels and those who work at
least 40 hours per week tend to have longer commutes than others."
in another words, Government Motors comes out with an electric car
in 2010 that when running on battery power could not even get 3.3
million people to work in 2005 one way.
the only ones that can afford it, are the ones that drive the most,
and can't use it. That is government logic and design at it's
the Nissan Leaf
costs $8,000 less with the same tax credits, gets 100 miles per
charge, and can also trickle charge on 120v anywhere so you are
is not mentioned, but, I am pretty sure with the proper cable you
could fast charge it from the exterior electrical box from any house
with an external A/C compressor too.
let us see which would most consumers buy as an electric car, since
the Volt is vastly inferior to the Toyota Prius hydrid in every
one in their right mind would buy a Volt instead of a Prius, though
I am sure a government worker or union member would.

the only thing the macho Chevy Volt is good for is soccer mom and
school kid delivery, as long as you do not get hit by the most
popular vehicle on the road, the 5,000 pound Ford F-150.
fact that a Volkswagon Jetta with a diesel and 5 speed gets better
MPG, is cheaper to insure, easier to park, has a farther range, and
you can replace the engine cheaper then the battery pack in the
Volt, didn't discourage Government Motors from their design. Just
like the government designers of the Yugo.
Federal government is stuck in two wars longer then Vietnam, we
still have 50,000 troops in Iraq getting killed, we are
$14,000,000,000,000+ in debt, there is no money in Social
inSecurity, there is no Federal Budget, and government motors
produces a vastly inferior hybrid and vastly inferior electric car
after tens of billions of tax dollars.
they are going to run health care with Obama Care, that should be
another under whelming success in their eyes.
radical social agenda to destroy the USA is right on schedule. I
already have Mao's little red book, maybe I can pick up a copy of
Rules For Radicals in pocket size, that Obama taught, for when I get
stopped by the Socialist Democrat Gestapo.
