2013 Chevy Volts will now need only 10 1/2 Hours Charging Time to Go 38 Miles
Great news for anyone foolish enough to be in the market for a Government Motors Volt. While the base price holds steady at a luxury-level $39,995, the 2013 Volt will have an increased all-electric range of 38 miles.
On the downside, it will now take even longer to charge: 10.5 hours using household current.
That comes to over 16 minutes charging time per mile. It would literally be just as fast to walk. Government subsidies come to an incredible $250,000 for every Volt sold. But not many sell anyway. Anyone wonder why?
