The amount of attention the Volt received was impressive as well. As I stopped at a store which offered hybrid parking in front, I heard a person exclaim "is that a Volt!?" to which brought him and his friend to a conversation. The Volt is still a pretty rare car.

Now on to the driving- this was pretty crazy- driving a car with no sound. I can see how this could be dangerous for those who aren't paying attention, or perhaps deaf, and it's pretty wild to drive. In either case, it takes some getting used to driving a stealthy car. Now you can sneak up behind people in the cover of darkness and honk! What a delight.

We'll cover Part 2: Driving the Volt on Sunday, so stay tuned!
