General Motors Corp. said Friday it has reached a preliminary
agreement with the California Air Resources Board about how to
classify its Chevy Volt in terms of emissions standards that could
allow the extended-range electric vehicle to attain the 100-miles-per-
gallon rating.

GM spokesman Dee Allen said the rating is far from set, stressing that
what has been agreed to on a preliminary basis is that the Volt would
be classified as an extended-range electric vehicle for the purpose of
fuel-economy ratings.

If that is made certain, he said, then the Volt, due out in November
2010, could would likely receive a rating of 100 miles per gallon or
better.

And it'll only cost $0 grand.  only.  I wouldn't even waste my time looking
at one in a showroom.  And precious few people with the sense God gave geese
will buy one.

No way. No How. No rebates.   GM is having daydreams.  If they were to put
out an electric or hybrid for the same money as Civic or Prius hybrids, they
might be in the ballpark, but at 40 big ones?  uh uh.
