Chevy/GM has recently committed to producing the plug-in hybrid (with fuel cell option) car, the Volt. This car is slated to get 150 mpg. Simply by switching to the Volt we will cut our gasoline needs to 1/5th of the current.

We must act even faster. I propose a project similar to the OLPC (One Laptop Per Child) project, called the OVPA, or One Volt Per Adult.

State governments would be encouraged to sign fleet leasing deals with GM, to allow every car owner in the state to trade in their current vehicle and get a low cost, fleet priced deal on a new Chevy Volt. They would also subsidize the fuel cell option and push ahead to get more hydrogen fueling stations along highways and major roads.
