Chevy Volts: 10 1/2 Hours Charging Time to Go 38 Miles

Great news for anyone foolish enough to be in the market for a Government Motors Volt. While the base price holds steady at a luxury-level $39,995, the 2013 Volt will have an increased all-electric range of 38 miles.

On the downside, it will now take even longer to charge: 10.5 hours using household current.

That comes to over 16 minutes charging time per mile. It would literally be just as fast to walk. Government subsidies come to an incredible $250,000 for every Volt sold. But not many sell anyway. Anyone wonder why?

Do not buy a car from this moonbat.

    One more BURN.

    Cleaner then natural gas.

    Somehow I can’t believe cleaner…

    The Ellen Degeneres look-alike (read affirmative action token lesbo) is getting a tingle in her leg. The gay with the blue tie (no, the one on the RIGHT) has a warm feeling in his diapers too.

    That’s the idea. Everybody out of their cars. They won’t be happy until everyone is riding a horse. Then the moonbat animal rights freaks will crawl out of the woodwork and we will really be screwed.

    Why in the world do they think these subsidies help?
    If the “Stimulus/Porkulus” program were just given to every tax paying mortgage holding job having American,even on a sliding scale the problem would have been solved. BUUUUT NOOOOOOO, our elected tormentors know better than any commoner.
    2012/2013,,,maybe sooner

    I know someone who bought oneā€”for all the wrong reasons: global warming, upgrading from his Prius, “clean” energy, etc. (Hey, that electricity is probably coming from a coal plant. Now add in the conversion loses…) His Volt was in the shop one week after he bought it. He was told that the needed repair was some major upgrade to the battery and charging circuit, which would tie up the car for two weeks. The punch line is the best: the loaner car they gave him was a pickup truck! (8 Gallons to the mile!)

    My brother in law bought one even after i explained all the negatives about it. He did not buy it for moonbat reasons. He bought it because he thought it was “cool”. He is not an Obama supporter but i still give him shit about buying a volt from Obama Motors.

    BTW, that 38 miles electric range only applies in warm weather. Drop the temperature to zero (like President Zero), and you cut that figure by half, or more. At -20 degrees, or lower, some batteries won’t even function at usable levels.

  9. Spider says:

    The Billions of your tax dollars given away to produce junk like the Volt was nothing more than a payback to the auto unions for their limitless support of the Marxist-in-Chief.

  10. J says:

    In related news Al Qaeda, after placing job ads for suicide bombers, made a bulk purchase of GM vehicles.

    When asked for a comment, a spokesman said ‘Buying a vehicle and explosives separately is expensive. GM on the other hand sells cars that explode on their own.’

    I’m afraid that another organization has been infiltrated by progs. In the May/June issue of the Highroads Magazine the President and CEO of AAA Arizona announced that they will began providing EV charging service in Arizona.

  12. Kevin R. says:

    The only way to really do electric cars would be to have cheap abundant nuclear power, electrically charged rail system that the “cars” would travel on, and batteries used to just get yourself from home to the road rail. But that problem would probably soon be solved too.

    It would be completely different than anything envisioned by enviro-moonbats.

    I’ve been a member of AAA for over 20 years and have always been happy with their service; however, I’ve recently become so disgusted with the Highroads Magazine – for playing up to Obama supporters – that I’m thinking of canceling my membership. In addition to the expected “going green” propaganda, in a recent edition, they published a huge article praising Dubai and encouraging Americans to vacation there.

    That is, if it doesn’t burn down your garage first.

    The Volt charges like old people fuck.

  18. LouieLouie says:

    I heard a Volt commercial on the radio this afternoon. Guy tells the gal that with his Volt he can take her to dinner 35 miles away and not use one drop of gas.

    Commercial didn’t say anything about getting back home, though.

    A simple and understandable example of how Libs operate — intentionally misleading statements, half truths and outright lies.

    between the Pious and the Dolt you have everything you need to know about government and libtards.

  20. Rex Freeway says:

    Correct me if im wrong, but isn’t the Volt the fantastic car that GM unveiled that was going to get an incredibly high miles per charge?? Like in the 280 miles per charge?

    What a complete POS. This is what the bail out money got the US taxpayer. GM is as big a joke as Obama is

  21. TimK says:

    Does anyone know the current/voltage requirements? i.e. what it really costs to go those 38 miles? 38 miles would take me to work and back twice. -tim

  24. […] $40,000 gets you an American GM Volt with a max range of maybe 80km per full charge (which takes 10 plus hours plugged in) – so the PROTON Saga EV wins on both counts of affordability and performance! Go PROTON! The […]
