I bought a Chevrolet Volt recently.

My first brand new car in my entire life, so far.

No pictures because it looks like every other Silver Topaz Metallic Volt with a black leather interior and polished wheels.

I found out this evening that the top speed is limited to 101 mph and that full throttle acceleration up to and including 101 mph runs the charge down quickly. The drain on the battery was 109 Kw indicated which would be 146 HP which is about what the electric motor is rated.
