I'd like to see the more barebones/low-spec EV and PHEV options available. And I forget what that hybrid sedan Chevy sold was -- Bolt? Volt? I have a coworker with one of them and he's a big fan, minimal maintenance costs and insane fuel economy. He's had several.
Volt was the EV sedan that had a gas engine just as a generator.

The small Bolt CUV EV is also a very good inexpensive EV.

Thanks, yeah the Volt is what he had. Pretty rad, if it were available as a wagon I'd be intrigued to say the least. Not sure how the GM EVs are going so far though.

CSB: I saw a Bolt CUV EV on RE71RS autocross and while it was initially fairly scary (tall vehicle, sticky tire, never seen the driver before so no idea if it was a n00b or what), it didn't do badly, and didn't roll over. Word is, it was someone who knew what they were doing, just driving something unusual that day.

True. Idk, I just know the basic rollover index thing is what we use to determine viability, and even then there's some stuff that's sketchy (Fiesta is a no-go in street classes, Fiesta ST is allowed but still makes me nervous)

Anyone fly Silver Airlines before? I’ll be in Tampa on business in April and I’m planning a long weekend in Key West with Ms. Corprin.

Just wrapped up 7+ months of strategy work with a presentation to leadership. And immediately logged on to the golf forums to tell my CSB bros. Soooo happy to have that done

From what I was told, it sounds like the Prologue is getting GM stuff :/ not really the direction I'd want to see, but I'm a little biased.

GM did team up with Honda with the Saturn Vue I think it was. It was an SUV that had a Honda V6 in it. So they have a history together.

I remember the first time I came across this information, very interesting stuff. IMO Honda is a fantastic engine company that bundles it with a car for convenience.
