Fusion Energi is up around $50K. Isn't their Taurus also up near $50K now? Chevy should be able to lower the MSRP of the Volt going into 2014 model year now that R&D costs are being washed through the sales. I remember the good old days of a Chevy Nova at $5K or Malibu about $7K. World monies are all losing their purchasing power as they inflate. I don't think this ends well in a few decades.
