This week, Granholm grabbed a spot in the Volt, albeit in the passenger seat, with her husband at the wheel and Lansing Mayor Virg Bernero and Senate Majority Leader Mike Bishop in the back. The foursome tooled around Lansing, the state's capitol city, and as Governor Granholm stepped out, she raved:
And proud is what GM ought to be, but only if the Volt's "pretty smooth" and "seamless" abilities translate into sales of its $41,000 ($33,500 after federal rebate) vehicle. Mayor Virg Benero exited the vehicle and exclaimed, "This car is the future." We certainly hope he's right.It's so quiet, you think you're in a luxury vehicle to begin with and the power is fantastic. You should ask Dan these questions cause he was behind the wheel, but I can just tell you from my perspective as a passenger, it was smooth, seamless, it was beautifully designed. GM should be very proud of this.
