I was always interested in futuristic cars and thought I wanted a Prius growing up.
But when it finally came time for me to get a car, the Chevrolet Volt had come out the clear best choice for me. I drive a lot all over the Golden State, so I needed a vehicle with long range.
The coolness factor evolved into a concern for the environment as my Volt faithfully served me through my Environmental Studies major at Santa Clara University.
On top of those factors, I have discovered with delight, as many have, the easy-to-drive-instatorque-low-maintenance-awesomeness of EVs.
