    This whole wave of E-REVs and EVs is like Christmas morning: without a lot of batteries, it's not going to be any fun.

    Wonder what the background is of the term "65 percent calibration" car ?

    Eric--it's an internal engineering term. Rob gave me an explanation, but it's a bit complex. Not sure I got the whole thing. It definitely isn't a reflection of how close the car is to production--it's a way they keep track of how many "gates" it has passed through in the refinement process.

    So if I am on the highway for a four hour trip, the first 40 miles, regardless of speed, is on battery and then is draws from the gasoline, right? What is the MPG?

    That car gets more interesting every day. I'm very curios about it.

    I knew those original reports were BS. There was no way GM was suddenly going to re-engineer the Volt's drive system and still make the late 2010 release.
