I like the way it drives. It has a more precise feel than a Prius. I used to have a Corvette and Corvette drivers always wave at each other. I'm not sure if Volt drivers should.

Should I give the finger to Leaf drivers because the Leaf is so impotent looking. It has an air cooled battery, you know. Not liquid cooled like real cars.

Also, I was thinking about an accessory light that comes on to show people that you're in electric mode to make them envious.

Personally, I think you should wear a green bandanna and start a gang of Volt Pirates. You can shake your fist as you pass other hybrids. You can hang out at Starbucks and talk about resistance. Which we know is futile.
bikeless. And doing ok with it. For now.
