If you do, be prepared to pay a $41,000 sticker price (you’ll get a $7,500 tax credit) for a blah sedan that can go about 50 miles on batteries if you charge it overnight, or can use conventional fuel.
How much money you save in gas costs depends on how long your trips are and how expensive your electricity is. But the car’s not primarily about savings (with a price like that, most people will never recoup their initial extra outlay), it’s about self-righteousness. My sentiments are with commenter “Lincoltf” at Althouse:
Who would’ve ever thought that the AGW cult would’ve thrown their lot behind a coal-powered car? Or maybe they’re all too stupid to realize where all that magical electricity comes from?
Nah, that couldn’t be it. They’re all wicked smart, just ask them.
The phrase “wickd smart” marks Lincolntf as a likely New Englander, although properly pronounced it’s “wicked smaaht.” Case in point (stay with it till the last line):
Of course, Damon himself is another case of “wicked smaaht” being awful dumb sometimes.
Gee. All roads seem to lead to Sarah Palin, even when you start out driving a Chevy Volt.
