New Chevy Volt about as powerful as a lawnmower

I read about the new GM Volt and needed to inform you, loyal reader,

Original quote:
"Using new methodology being developed, GM said it expects the Volt to
consume as little as 25 kilowatt hours per 100 miles in city driving.

Result: 6.71 horsepower

Result:
