Toyota Prius technology with the synergy driving system has been very impresive on all the Toyota line. But the Volt seems to be ahead of the game in technology in the new quest for alternative fuel technology. Time will only be the judge.

I probably wouldn't mind owning a Volt if the production car looked anything like the concept car. The concept is sleek and futuristic, and the production car looks like a normal sedan with a few styling cues similar to the concept. Don't get me wrong... the production version is a good looking car, but it's nothing like the concept.

I wonder if you could figure a way to just turn the gasoline motor off altogether for short trips and recharge the cars battery from the wall.

The prius battery has to have a lot more capacity than the bunch of car batteries he stuck in the trunk.

A prius already drives like a Geo with a piano in it. Adding 500lbs worth of car batteries couldn't help.
