Tonight I saw a Chevy Volt on the street for the first time ever. And, not surprisingly, it was dressed in the livery of the region's major electric utility--and rather bright livery at that--as it moved through the parking lot of the supercenter where I work.

Has anyone actually seen a Volt being driven by Joe or Jane Lunch Bucket yet? If so, where? (I have a feeling you're more likely to see a Chevy Vega than a Chevy Volt, because nobody I know can afford one, much less wants one.)

PS. I think I would rather drive a Vega over Volt. Or even drive a Volga, a Soviet built piece of garbage then Volt.

I see them so frequently that it is more noteworthy if a day passes when I don't see one...

I live in the LA area, which is the supposed hybrid vehicle capitol of the US. I see few Volts on the street. Seems like SoCal drivers are smart after all.

We have a couple of them in the Town where I live, but strangely you don't see them on really cold days. I wonder why...

With there being the equivalent of 1 Volt for every 60 square miles in the US, it's easy to undestand why they are not seen very often...

I checked out the Volt that has been sitting in the dealers lot for months. $36,780 for a compact car. No wonder they don't sell...

Black one...yesterday. Not sure why but I rarely see the Nissan Leaf. I see about five Volts a week but I've only seen two Leafs in the last year.

Same car on the same lot as I saw last month. But with less then 1400 sold in Spetember, how can you expect to see very many?

Every now and then I see a few. The Volt is a very good looking car, but they don't sell as much because of price.
