Video: What We Paid for Our Chevy Volt

Brian Fuller, editorial director of the EE Life Community for EE Times, is taking the vehicle around the country and blogging about it on Drive for Innovation, a partnership between UBM Electronics, the parent company of Design News, and Avnet Express.

He filed the video comment below on Friday, July 29, in response to Charles Murray's story, My Chevy Volt Test Drive. (Brian let Chuck take the Volt for a spin, and Chuck blogged about his initial impressions.)

Chuck's story noted that the Drive for Innovation partnership had paid $57,000 to acquire a spanking new, bright red Volt. Readers wondered why the price was so high, since the list price is only $40,000.

In his video comment, Brian explains the price and talks about the Volt's GPS and its issue with blind spots.
