ALTCAR Expo slams a homerun with the Chevy VOLT…

You know, until I actually sat in the Volt at the Alternative Car Expo here in Santa Monica, I wasn’t so sure about Green Vehicles. Not too many put an emphasis on good design. But after this Ride N’ Drive with GM Environmental Dood, Shad Balch… I’m diggin this car. So much so that I had to do up my own version.

The Volt is top notch from the getgo. The seats, ergonomics, fit and finish are top quality and although the power is governed a bit much for me, it does the job and feels awesome. Not bad for a car that has no tranny, touch sensor technology for us into super cool and a pretty forward thinking design. It’s not radical, but thought through well. Plan on doing a RIDE ALONG Episode of this puppy soon…

But the show overall had some cool stuff ‘ncluding an Electric Kart Racer from Shane Poindexter, The Fisker and some other cool contraptions.
