The Volt was the victim of all sorts of criticism: The range was too short. The interior was too cramped. The gas mileage wasn’t good enough. There was a mechanical connection between the engine and the wheels. GM took government bailout money. The Volt wasn’t really an EV. The Volt wasn’t really a hybrid. The Volt wasn’t really a cantaloupe.
