I've driven a Volt and two of my friends have them. They are, indeed, remarkable cars. The tech that allows the car to do what it does so well is nothing short of amazing. As Chris said, it is very quiet and smooth. It handles surprisingly well and it has surprising power. And, it's a great and very usable car. That Chris did this review in that way speaks to both the goodness of the Volt, and to who might be interested and for what reasons. Anything interesting with four wheels (or two) should be fair game for review - but only if they're real motorheads.
