The car can go 40 miles on its charge, which for many is enough for a typical commute. I may have gotten this wrong, but I thought GM was shooting higher than 40 miles. But I could be wrong.
There's no price on it yet, but kudos for an American company for beating out Toyota and Honda in this sprint to be first. However, what matters is which companies can sustain a quality plug-in vehicle that is sensible for American families.
