The cool thing about that S10 was that it basically WAS an EV1 system, just in an S10 body - including, get this, two-wheel FRONT WHEEL drive.

A power company down in Georgia sold a pair of them on Ebay a while back. I don't think they knew what they had!

I haven't heard of any other car based on the VOLT design yet.
