Today's New York Times has a special section on cars called "Getting to
Green"
http://www.nytimes.com/pages/automobiles/autospecial/

which includes an article on the Volt.

I intend to go to the Chicago Auto Show and tell the people in the GM
display that I will not buy a GM car until I can get a volt, and I'll offer
them a down payment. Nothing else they build is environmentally or
politically sound. If enough people say it, it ought to raise the priority
level of getting the Volt out.

GM already has stated it has a very high priority for a long time. Wouldn't be surprised if it is and has been the
companies number one priority. Engineering such a car for the masses takes time. If they cut corners and there are
safety issues it can cost them many millions.

Good luck. I hope it helps, but I'm not optimistic. Several people tried
this with the EV1, too, and you see how far it got them. But what else can
you do? The Braude Initiative didn't work either.
