    Dear Brit I have to correct your statement about Chevrolet Volt battery range. My 2012 volt range is 45 to 50M and my daughter’s 2013 Volt range is 50 to 55M on battery. (Her right foot is lighter then mine and I use the sport setting for drive mode more then she does). Please let us know how did you get only 32M.
    For those who count in MPG’s, we average around 320Mpg. If MB can beat that, my E350 Bluetec Diesel lease ends in March 2013. Only problem is, my local MB dealer does not know what a B class is. Yet.
