A typical VOLT for the PNW is only going to get 16 miles per full
charge, and a daily use of that full charge is going give roughly a
full year's worth of use before it'll need a replacement battery if
the bottom line is to remain capable of 16 miles per charge. So, at
best it's not a good deal as it currently stands, unless the local
electric energy is discounted by 50% and the battery replacement cost
doesn't exceed 10 cents per mile for roughly a 6000 mile annual
usage. Any extra millage per year would have to be accomplished by
its 30 mpg engine driven generator capability.
It's unlikely that any replacement of the 16 kwhr battery is going to
cost $600, or even $6000.
So, the Chevy Volt is DOA, just like 99.9% of the privet boats and
yachts are worth little more than spendy coffins.
