If the volt burst into flames all on its own…..I dont see it ending well during any chases involving hostile fire.

Look at the bright side, at least nobody will try to steal them.

Wonder if the fire department gets extra training in hazardous material fires?

Couldn’t tell, but just in case you weren’t being snarky I used my handy-dandy search engine to dig up where I’d read this;

Thank heavens I live in ND, where sanity rules 90% of the time and the oil industry gives us a surplus budget and a 3.2% unemployment rate. And I have
never seen a Chevy Volt !

Actually there are some legitimate uses for these Volts:
1 – they can be used for police escorts for Chairman O’s limousines when he come to NYC for his weekly ( or is it bi-weekly? I forget) fundraisers
2 – the food police can use them to check out restaurants where reports of people salting their food may have taken place
3 – the smoke patrol can use them to hunt down anyone that would have the nerve to burn actual tobacco anywhere in the city

I can see it now. Winter in NYC, cops using the heater to keep warm. They get a call for a bank robbery. Try to go to the scene of the crime, and find out the battery is dead!
Another clean getaway.

So if they try to pull you over for speeding, all you have to do is run for it and wait until the cop car’s tiny little auxiliary motor kicks in because the battery is dead, whereupon you can get away clean.

Cool.

Are the voters in NY this incredibly stupid, or, did this guy really put on a convincing campaign when he ran for office?

He bought it. But the people of the city had to be stupid enough to sell it to him.

While they’re at it, I hope they don’t forget to outfit the police with BB guns and sling shots. Way to go, Mayor Moron.

Why not buy them horses? The horses would be faster and they could fertilize Central Park. There would be more horse power than the Volt. Now that they have Volts and the criminals are laughing their asses off.

Horses don’t burst into flames often either.

maybe it’s just the way i think, but your comment made me think of zero.

when the horses are retired, they could be food for the homeless maybe?

Note to criminals: Forget about making it to the border . . . just drive for 41 miles in any direction.

The GREATEST thing to happen to criminals in NYC in decades . There may be a mass flocking of even more violent scum to NYC , now that all they need to have is a ten speed to beat the popo .

Think about it though. How many high-speed chases have you heard of within the city limits of NY?

The next step, when these “cars” dont work out will be to form a 20 PHd committee to study why the cars cost so much to operate and buy. The results of the 18 month 9 million dollar study will be inconclusive due to running out of funds before a conclusion could be reached.
However, Bloomberg will be Obama’s hero.
