The 230 MPG Marketing Lie - Why electric cars are going to be "hot"

Chevy Volt is doing major advertising around a 230MPG theme. They've developed this number, though it's not certified by the EPA (the government body that gives out the real values).

The Volt is somewhat of a hybrid electric car: you plug it in to an electric socket, charge up the batteries, drive up to 40 miles on that charge, and can use a regular gasoline engine after the batteries are dead.

My Take on The 50 Worst Cars of All Time

The Freakonomics blog had an interesting post on the 50 worst cars of all time:

In talking with an auto executive a few years back, I got some insight into how disasters like this happen. I asked this auto executive how his company decided between the 10 or 15 concept cars that the design teams proposed.

His answer: The five most senior executives at the company looked over the possible vehicles and picked the ones they liked best!

That's a scary bit of information.
