[12:22] {Threei}  GM Begins taking orders on Chevy Volt; priced at $41K; with options up to $44.6K
[12:22] {nemo} ahhh...an affordable hybrid
[12:22] {Threei}  The Volt will be initially available to Chevrolet customers in California, New York, Michigan, Connecticut, Texas, New Jersey and the Washington D.C. area
[12:22] {nemo} gag
[12:23] {Threei}  - Chevrolet Volt is the only electric vehicle that can operate under a range of weather climates and driving conditions with little concern of being stranded by a depleted battery. Volt has a total driving range of about 340 miles and is powered by electricity at all times. For up to the first 40 miles, the Volt drives gas- and tailpipe-emissions-free using electricity stored in its 16-kWh lithium-ion battery. When the Volts battery runs low, a gas powered range-extending engine/generator seamlessly operates to extend the driving range another 300 miles on a full tank
[12:24] {Les} les slaps strider around with the pull string that originates one of eleven random Chatty Kathy phrases
