General Motors just announced the Chevy Volt range extender price: $41,000 including destination and handling. The lease price $349 a month (with $2,500 down) is the same as the pure electric Nissan Leaf.

What is a range extender compared to a pure electric car?

GM China is making money with the Buick. One of the reasons General Motors kept the Buick brand is because it is such a huge success globally.

Ford has fabulous profit’s. Why?

At the 2010 Plug-in conference I talked to a group called Alt-E. Alt-E takes fleet trucks that get around 10 miles to the gallon and converts them into range extenders that get 40 miles to the charge and can still tow 7,500 pounds.
