So I went to the Chevy Volt website and lo and behold the release date of the volt is no longer mid year next year but stated as November 2010. I am waiting for the relase date to change to some time in 2010 instead. I also read about the generator kicking while driving and not only when the battery is depleated to 30%. What is with that? I thought you could drive it 40 miles before the gas generatior was to kick in? Am I mistaken about this? Anybody read about some change this way? Also I read the battery pack they have wighs 400 pounds. Yikes that is heavy.
