Outlander PHEV Field trip

I read your post very carefully and was impressed. I did look at the PHEV but I think the bad sales pitch in part put me off, I did not even know your car had adaptive cruise control, I guess we learn something new every day!!

Are there any Volt owners in Australia?

I'm not sure were the below post went you sent but I'm wondering why the barrage of anti-Volt came from, no EV is perfect, not even the Tesla but we buy or modify what we think is best for ourselves and our families, I chose the Volt for heaps of reasons, all positive. Can't drive more than 90 kms i...

Are there any Volt owners in Australia?

I was thinking of asking for anyone who owns any electric car to say what most impressed them in a 'goodie' they have in their car. Mine would have been, programmed to my liking via the menu, I stop the car and hit the blue button, alight and walk away, listen for the horn beep and I know all of my ...

Volt Range *no discussion*

I have only had my Volt for a few months now but in the colder weather I could get 65-70K per charge, every day, heater up high and heated seats on, warmer weather now and it's rare to get under 85K from a charge with aircon on and not exactly driving slow. I have 3 phase at home and used to charge ...

Are there any Volt owners in Australia?

First, reading the forum I noticed something I don't often see, good English and seemingly no foul language, what a pleasure. I'm not a snob or a perfectionist but it's nice to read posts here that don't offend! So, anyway, hi to everyone, sometimes I feel a lonely soul when I drive around Adelaide,...
