20% less people makes it useless? So it seats 4 people instead of 5. In trade for that one person, people who own a Volt and travel less than 32 miles a day (which represents a large percent of people), don't need to buy gas for their daily commutes, EVER! A great way to flip the bird at OPEC and their al-Queda friends. Does this mean that ANY 2-seater is "worse than useless?"
