a hybrid with a backup gas-powered motor
GM Takes on Tesla


Despite many duds in its past, GM also has the chops to build great cars, as just about any Corvette owner will attest. Even the Volt (which is really a hybrid with a backup gas-powered motor) has a core coterie of devoted owners who say the car is reliable and enjoyable, especially when motoring purely on electric power, which costs about one-fourth as much as gasoline.
Really, Rick Newman?

1) Having a following doesn't make a car great. Edsels are prized collectibles today.

2) It's a hybrid because it has batteries and a backup gas-powered motor to charge them! If it was a hybrid without the backup gas-powered motor, you'd probably call it a tribrid with the ICE.
