    Very informative article. I personally have been opposed to EVs as they are high priced and honestly not worth the money in the real world.

    It does seem that EVs are overpriced but so are all new technologies. Give it a while to set in and everyone will try to be hippies and help save the environment while destroying our economy by not buying gas anymore.

    I actually really like the new CR-Z, didn't think I would but it has really grown on me. It has a very different style that just stands out and looks real nice. I wouldn't even consider the Volt for anything the only reason I would go to Chevy is for a new Silverado, had one at my last job as my company vehicle it was actually very nice, I enjoyed driving it more than my old Titan I had.

    I think i'd rather have the Titan. lol. I wouldn't mind the CR-Z, if there were more parts available and the price was a tad lower. lol

    Yes I agree on the price, it seems like all the new cars are gettin more expensive when they don't need to be. The CR-Z would be a great car if priced better and the parts are starting to get out there, I am still trying to find parts for the 2012 civic sedan nothing available on the new style although it hasn't really changed that much just enough to make a difference.
