But a lease is only $350/month. The leasing company gets to keep the $7500 tax credit.

Ah, oops.

Didn't think it was political but I can see how it could get there pretty quickly.

Anything that is remotely energy related will get political. However, as I posted there, the Volt has the worst of both worlds going for it. It needs to be gased up and plugged in. And who hasn't forgotten to plug in their cell phones before going to bed. You think it won't happen to Volt?

I'd like to see this discussion stay on this side.

The Volt is the first production vehicle of its kind and contains a lot of cool technology.

As the first, I'm sure it'll have a lot of limitations.

But I'd like to see a clear posting of its positives.

They have to do better than this. Unless it is all electric with a 150 mile range it is old news. Remember that the 40 mile range includes getting back home to charge it! So you got 20 miles.This is a hybrid for all intents and purposes at a time that everybody and their uncle these days makes hybrids.

It also requires premium gasoline, seats only four people (the battery runs down the center of the car, preventing a rear bench) and has less head and leg room than the $17,000 Chevrolet Cruze, which is more or less the non-electric version of the Volt.

Ouch. I really like the idea of the Volt. I can live with the reduced room. I don't like the price but I can live with the $350/month lease even though it's only a 12K mile per year lease and I hate leases. Of any car out there, this is one of the few that I think might be a good idea to lease.

This might seem petty and silly but the deal killer for me is the premium gas (if it's true). I once had a car that required premium gas and vowed never again. If I had the money and desire for a $100K+ high-performance sports car, I would be ok with premium but for a car with average performance, no freakin' way. Requiring premium for an average car is senseless.
