"premium interior could stand to finally offer Corvette owners seats that doesn’t suck."
I missed that option

With a range of 300 miles, it does deserve some interest. I occasionally car pool with a guy that has a volt, it only has a range of about 40 miles (depending on circumstances) and we live 35 miles from our office, so he gets a gas-free ride in, but a gas guzzling ride home. Me, I don't want to buy gas, I also don't want to plunk down $80k+ for a nice all electric Tesla/Fiskar either. As for the Nissan, we'll "leaf" that one alone too.

You missed the fine print: That 300 includes the gas engine, just like the standard Volt (I think they put a bigger gas tank in the Caddy, seems like the Volt was 250 range). No matter what, still just 50 miles max on batteries from previous night's charge. (more like 25-30 in real world applications)
I met a guy the other day that has placed an order for a new S Model Tesla.
He ordered the pumped up one with the faster charger and longer range. They claim a true 300 miles on one charge. So even if they are being overly optimistic when considering real world conditions, one should be able to make a couple hundred miles. But last I heard Tesla was having problems as well.
