    Saving money?
    And just how much did those cars cost?
    It is going to take a long time to recover the $10.000 or more that those cars cost over their equivalent gas powered ones.

      The Chevy Volt has a total cost of ownership (that’s EVERYTHING) several thousands lower than ANY gasoline only car, even the “economy” class cars from Hyundai, Toyota, Honda, etc (and yet the Volt is a nicer and safer car!). Look it up. And if you don’t need the extended range feature (drive 50 or less miles a day) the Nissan LEAF 5 year TCO is even less. Don’t believe the myths you’ve been spoon fed.
