Chevy Volt Slogan-Mania

The Chevy Volt, the $41,000 before-tax-credit, four-seat car that you might as well buy because you’re paying for it anyway, goes 40 miles on a charge before the engine that requires premium gasoline kicks in and will probably cost its buyers more than a few friendships because the “dude, can I bum your electrical outlet for a few hours so I can get back home?” thing will get old fast, is officially on the market.

This means that the search for the perfect Chevy Volt slogan is on. My current favorite is from Twitterer Gunservatively: “I could have had a V8.” John Hawkins suggests: “You’re rich, you love trees, you want your friends to know.”

Other slogans from the Twitterlanche of suggestions are here.

I’ll throw a couple on the pile just for Saturday fun, and feel free to add your own:

–Volt: Because “Coal” didn’t test well in the greenie demo

–The ultimate plugging machine

–This isn’t your father’s bailout

Yesterday, President Obama demonstrated just about how far the Volt can go on a single charge:

Meanwhile, John “I was against paying Mass. yacht taxes before I was for them” Kerry is on a quest to make electric and hybrid cars noisier. I tell ya, there’s no pleasing some people.
