Bonus: He plans to “drive it myself.”
In other words, he plans to buy a used Chevy Volt in five years because that POS isn’t going to make it.
President Obama, speaking to a raucous crowd of United Auto Workers, vowed to buy a Chevrolet Volt electric car in “five years” — just as soon as his presidency is over.
“I got to get inside a brand-new Chevy Volt fresh off the line,” Obama said about a recent visit to a Detroit Chevy factory. “Even though Secret Service wouldn’t let me drive it. But I liked sitting in it. It was nice. I’ll bet it drives real good. And five years from now when I’m not president anymore, I’ll buy one and drive it myself.”
The Volt is a plug-in hybrid electric car first demoed by Chevy in 2007.
