Although I voted "unlikely," I am considering a Volt.
Paulydel, as for the electric rates increasing, there is the expectation that the excess power created by the auxilliary car generator, could add electricity to the grid. If you go solar, there is a good chance that you can sell excess power to the power company through net metering. Moreover, if you combine domestically built solar roofs with domestic built solar cars, a lot of your unemplloyed friends and neighbors may be able to work bringing it about.
Israel has done a deal with Renault to completely go to electric cars starting in 2012.
Actually, the Chevy Cruze is the car they'll be making at Lordstown; it's not an electric car, or even a hybrid.
Also, GM paid back its government loans. Its leaner, meaner, and coming back in style.
Who can afford a new car with all the taxes we have to pay these days?
I am fine with what I have. I also prefer to wait until a new vehicle is time tested. After last winter, I would like to see Lordstown make a 4 passenger vehicle with 4 wheel drive, 4 feet of road clearance and get 40 miles to the gallon!
