The new Chevy Volt
Thanks to my friend Bob Wilson at the Chuck Nash Auto Group in nearby San Marcos, I had a chance to test drive this brand new Chevy Volt this morning. This is a truly amazing car in so many ways in terms of technology, energy efficiency and even luxury. It's a little disconcerting to drive a car that runs absolutely silent while achieving impressive speed and acceleration--all I heard was tire noise, and that was minimal.
The only thing I objected to was a reference to the "high-end Bose sound system"--an oxymoron is there ever was one--but other than that I would love to own one of these electric cars. If you've resisted electric and hybrid cars up to this point, and I know I have, you owe it to yourself to take a drive in one of these. This is the future of automobiles.
