    Chevy Volt Costing Taxpayers Up to $250K Per Vehicle

    Analyst: 'This might be the most government-supported car since the Trabant'

    By Tom Gantert | Dec. 21, 2011


    Each Chevy Volt sold thus far may have as much as $250,000 in state and federal dollars in incentives behind it – a total of $3 billion altogether, according to an analysis by James Hohman, assistant director of fiscal policy at the Mackinac Center for Public Policy

    It is your fault. If 60,00 had been sold it would only be $25K/veh.

    That's classic, right there- it's always the taxpayer's fault.

    Craziness run amok is the end product of policies established by men who are wise in their own eyes doing things to solve problems they perceive in their ignorance without help from God whom they have banned from participation in the process.

    Electric Cars, Like the Volt....

    ....will not only cost taxpayers something to subsidize, it will cost the owner more than they've been told to charge those batteries. Another cost that is not mentioned is the cost to replace the battery. I know most batteries are covered for quite a while, but when that coverage ends, how much will a battery cost? I ask this, because the other day, I paid over a hundred dollars for an inexpensive (fuel powered car) battery, from a discount automotive parts store.

    It is an example of misusing statistics. There is a good chance that this money has produced an much useful technical data as the the money spent on the space station.
