Hybrid Vehicle Done Right — The Chevy Volt

November was a busy month for us from the Electric Vehicle standpoint.  In addition to being invited to the unveiling of the Nissan Leaf, we were among a small number of EV1 drivers invited to test-drive the Chevy Volt on Dec. 1!  Check out our review of the Volt here:
