Yea man, it got me hooked on electric cars. Even without the economics and environmental stuff, they're all quick off the line. The Volt may only have 149 horsepower, but peak torque 294 lb-ft is available at 0 rpm. It's like that for all electric cars and even series hybrids such as the Honda Accord.That's actually pretty damn decent given the car. I drive a highly modified sports/muscle V8 car so my definition of quick and fast is up there, but had no idea the Volt was the swift around town.
