The Tesla is quite pricey for the average consumer, but I will say that I am a huge fan of the Chevy Volt, much to the chagrin of my family and friends. The Volt is also a bit pricey for what it is, admittedly, but it's cheaper than a Tesla. If I could afford a Volt right now, I'd buy one. I'm actually planning to test-drive one (a Volt) in the near future, for the purposes of doing a review of it on my Facebook page. When I write my review, I'll also post it on this site.
