Turns out that GM are lying scumbags who cheerfully promoted the Volt as a series hybrid while actually building yet another parallel hybrid. For the laymen, the volt is just an overpriced Prius with a larger battery. No technological progress was made, this is just more of the same. Seeing as how GM is owned by the public at the moment, I feel it is well within my rights to demand that heads roll for this blatant deception. I think some bastards need to learn that selling yourself to the government means you don't to get **** the people who own you.
