    The difference between a Volt and any other hybrid is that the Volt can run without the gas engine. You take the gas engine out of a Prius and you can't make it past the first traffic light. That is a very big difference.

    For all the talk of E-REV being so different from The Prius synergy drive, the Volt sure seems to be set up like the Prius. Not that it is a bad thing necessarily.
    I was more apalled that Car and Driver is saying the battery charging is only 67% efficient.
    Wonder if all this complication will lend more credibility to pure BEVs.
