We traded our 2008 Prius in on a 2012 Volt Premium yesterday. Got a great deal on a used 2012 White Diamond Tricoat with 5000 miles. It looks like it hasn't even been driven in the rain. It is going to be my wife's car.....maybe. I drove it to work today because she was apprehensive about taking it off charge the first time without me being there. I didn't get it on charge till about midnight and took it off around 4am. I left with 13 miles of charge and the ICE didn't start until 16.4 miles. I ended up with about 71 mpg over 47 miles. On the efficiency chart, I got a 100% for whatever that is worth. I think it will be easy to get all the way to work on a full charge. Electricians are checking the circuits today at work for proper grounding. If they check ok, I will have to get approval to plug in at work. If my wife is intimidated by the technology, I may be forced to drive it all the time. She gets in a car and drives, or parks and talks on the phone. No, She's NOT a hypermiler except I gave her a choice of a new Prius plug in, a Lexus IS250c, or a Volt. She didn't want the Prius because of no satellite radio, no leather, and no seat heaters. She didn't want the Lexus because of the mpg, so the Volt was is in the driveway.
