If we are going to nit-pick as to what the Volt is and is not. It is a "plug-in" hybrid able to operate as either pure EV, series hybrid, or parallel hybrid modes as determined by the software running it.

And as to the "kits" if people here are complaining about the additional costs and time to recoup of the Volt and standard Prius bringing up these very expensive warrany breaking kits is almost laughable.

Ultimately I feel the Volt is mostly a platform for GM to develop and refine their hybrid and electric drivetrains that so many see as the future. I doubt it will ever be terribly profitable car for them. But the tech that comes from it will likely be used to build better vehicles later on.
