There's a cool new piece at NPR Will Consumers Buy The Chevy Volt And Nissan Leaf?
Relevant because in just a few short months, GM is launching the Chevy Volt, one of the most anticipated vehicles to hit the auto scene in a long time. The Volt is of course joining Nissan's Leaf as the nation's first mass-market electric cars.
Experts are torn - on one hand Volt is costly at $41,000 but on the flip side Volt owners will be able to apply for up to $7,500 in tax credits. The Leaf is less expensive, but not as long-running, but who knows which point will drive consumers more to actually make a purchase.
In any case it'll be interesting to see what happens so the round up at NPR was fun to read.
What do you think? Will consumers swoop in on the Volt like mad, or not so much?
