Some EV owners pay 25 - 40 cents per kWh for grid electricity. If the car is inefficient some of them buy gasoline instead.
That is not my situation. I want my car to reduce the pollution I am causing when I drive to work
Compared to the Prime, the Volt leads to 39% more CO2 emissions,
265% more Nox and Sox emissions
My old Honda Fit is superior to the Volt in these aspects.
I have PV. It is no excuse to be wasteful since generation I do not use reduces local power plant generation to serve a neighbor.
