Nope, the Volt with its 50 mile EV range and 350 mile overall range is
ideal for me.  My daily use is about 32 miles so I drive exclusively on
electricity from my home solar.  Yet we can go to gramma's at the drop of
a hat which is 150 miles away too.  All for only the $12k like-new
purchase price for the 3 year old off-lease VOLT.  Ain't no BEV that could
do that.

Well, you could have used something else zero emission if you had it
instead of your PIH (and create a bit less pollution than a full ICE), but
again, your use is unfortunately not typical.
