1. The Volt ONLY caught fire during a side impact test 3 weeks later? Notice he never states why the Volt caught fire but leading you to believe it just a random unsafe occurrence. BTW GM has fixed this issue so it can't catch fire at anytime during or after a crash. Hes not even telling the truth about it. Ford has 500k + recalls on vehicles that could catch fire without even being in a crash and yet he is worried about one that caught on fire 3 weeks later, in a test lab thats been fixed, and that was only due to not draining the battery properly.

2. Fact two he makes it sound like the Volt is a government mandate project that was rushed to the market by the Obama administration, which is the reason. Truth is Bob Lutz had this car created back in 2006 and was shown at the 2007 North American auto show as a concept and he said he wanted to see this car to market sooner than later. This was long before any knew who Obama was.

3. He states they are have being issues with the battery in cold weather with range etc. First of all their has never been any issues with Volt and range in cold weather the reason for lower range in cold weather is due to the chemical reaction of batteries. The cold weather slows the charging and slow the flow of electricity so it not losing any energy it just producing electricity slower. This is a normal process in physics and not a flaw as he mentions.
