*sigh* I wish...but I doubt it will be an option unless it's through an aftermarket shop and then I'm sure it won't be cheap. :(

Will probably cost a couple grand. That's how much it costs for the Prius retrofit.

The company I work for just purchased a Volt for evaluation. We are participating in a national trial.
It was in our fleet service shop today.
I had the opportunity of checking it out.
Nice car well designed much bigger inside than the CT.
Fit and finish are good and center console more stylish and modern than the Lexus.
Only problem - price tag over $41,000

No kidding, what line of business are you in? There is a Volt owner in my Town, not a bad looking car. Wow, the console is more stylish and modern than the CT?

More stylish? Maybe more modern, but not in a good way IMO. Looks more like a child's toy in some ways... Stylish is a matter of opinion I suppose, but it doesn't look sophisticated in any way.

A little plasticky, but the styling in the Volt is much more improved relative to other Chevy models.

However, the ergonomics suck in the Volt. Drove it a few times in LA. Hard to reach and press buttons without having to glance down, plus the buttons are vertical and flush, rather than tilted and more ergonomic like in our CTs.

Matt, you sure do double post a lot on here...

I'm not a fan of that interior of the Volt at all, way too much white plastic, our CT looks top notch compared to that IMO.

Back in December 2010 I almost bought a Volt. The Chevrolet dealer was such a tool about the car I said forget it. Three months later i bought the Ct200h. Definitely the better choice.

Too funny. I wonder what the cost per mile is to drive the Volt vs. the CT? I'm sure there must be a study out there comparing electricity costs for charging these electric cars vs. the fuel costs & associated mileage. Obviously the other factor and a completely different evalution is the carbon footprint of both options.

Not my experience

I gave up on the CT200H mainly because of the tire wear Lexus projects for the car. I purchased at Volt. It is true, I get about 35 to 40 miles on the battery. I do average 40 mpg on the open road using just the gas engine to charge the battery. Most of my trips are in the 60 mile range and my overall average is close to 100 mpg. I haven't got enough data to yet to see what my electric cost will be.
