MSNBC: EPA rating EVs & 2009 Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance

Lou Ann Hammond talks to MSNBC’s Alex Witt about how the EPA rates the range extender Chevy Volt and Nissan’s zero emission vehicle (ZEV) LEAF. General Motors says that they used EPA’s process to calculate miles per gallon nets the Chevy Volt 230 mpg. Nissan says if they use the same process their ZEV LEAF will get 360 mpg. EPA says they haven’t approved either of those numbers.

How much will it cost to charge your vehicle?

How willing are people to purchase electric vehicles such as the Volt?

And we end by talking about the 2009 Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance.
