[quote=“ChevEE, post:17, topic:23642”][quote=“MKNiner, post:15, topic:23642”]The key for me is the Volt is built like a car I wouldn’t mind driving. In the past Hybrids (i.e. Prius) are just freakin ugly. The Volt is sharp looking.
I would be interested to drive it to see what kind of power you get.
The price is still to high IMO, but I agree the lease offer is smart.[/quote]
Nice thing about electric motors is huge torque numbers. That equates to quick off the line, just not a sustained strong acceleration from factory most likely due to low HP.[/quote]
I just saw that the Volt has roughly 75HP and 273 lb-ft of torque.
As comparison, one of my uncles tried to restore an old WWII Army jeep which has an engine of 60HP and 110 lb-ft of torque.
