Volt Birth Watch 29: A Pretty Re-Volting Ad

And you thought the Lincoln ads were bad. The video clip is not a fake; it's actually an ad Chevy is running late at night on some cable channels. I could make all kinds of comments here, but I'll leave that to you readers. If anyone could explain to me what it has to do with selling a gas-electric hybrid car, I'd appreciate it.

    I'd like to take this moment to thank my PVR for allowing me to watch television without having to see commercials like this!

    Who is beating GM?? nobody Good point. I can't think of another automaker that is as successful at losing money as is GM.

    Someone trash talking the Tesla, amazing for such a car company putting it's resources and money and actually comming up with a car that can go over 150 miles and smoke a Vett at the same time, now granted they havent found the right transmission yet, but hey...it's not the size as GM, and if it were , GM and the other 1.8 had better whatch it..the 2.8 combined couln't make or won't make a electric car..C'mon GM, your idea for Hybird is a JOKE! Even Ford/ Toyota has a far better system, if they can make a Escape get 37/32 mpg, why can't you make the Tahoe get 27/ 25 .

    Who is beating GM?? nobody You might be right, but I dunno Chrysler is really Charging forward(pun intended) and might beat them. You were talking about bankruptcy right, nobody is beating them to a swift bankruptcy, and being the automotive loss leader.
