even more reason to go buy a new challenger, Camaro, Mustang that make over 400HP with an old school V-8 before they kill them off to sell those pods

And after a year when it's used up, you just put it curbside with your other recyclables.

It is called research and development.

I see you are not alone in bashing these odd little vehicles, but it is no surprise here.

Do you folks not think that the horse and buggy drivers laughed at the first single cylinder engine powered 'horseless carriages'?

Technology is not advanced by just thinking in the same mode and restyling the same old thing. It is advanced by thinking outside the box and then having the balls to actually try to make it work.

Will this iteration of the technology be a big hit and make a ton of money? Doubtful.

Is it a first step that may lead to a big step forward? Maybe...

That's all well and good, but I'd like to see GM work a little more on reliability and paying back 40 or 50 billion dollars of tax payer debt they have managed to borrow(steal) with there idiotic management skills which this falls under.
