The Chevy Volt is yet another hybrid car used as a fashionable accessory for liberal Hollywood types and homosexuals. It is made by Obama backed (read: socialism) GM. Like the Toyota Prius, the Volt emits harmful radiation and is likely to electrocute its passengers or rescue workers in the event of a crash. Unlike the Prius it uses a different technology and can run on only the electric motor for an extended period. The tiny gas engine isn't even hooked up to the wheels and functions merely as a generator to charge the batteries. This is a highly inefficient system as there are losses in both the charging of the battery and in the electric motor which wouldn't exist if the engine was just connected to the wheels with a tranny and drive shafts. The government is literally paying people to take these things off their hands through factory rebates.
