I just looked up my Volt on thatcham.org, and it looks like I've got more doors than you!Parax said:Brian Matthews said:I've just had a look at the tables and the floorplan data only seem to indicate in the number of doors and whether it is convertible or an estate, so it seems that saloon/hatch is the default 'other'.
The funny thing is that the most recent list is showing the Earth as Petrol! rather than Electric Like the Electron and Positiv.

I saw a possible explanation of the insurance groups in one of the reviews back about February or March: they reckoned that with fewer dealers spares for the Volt might be harder to come by, so that pushes the insurance group up by 1, but because the purchase price is lower the actual cost of the insurance will be about the same.Parax said:ha! yup, but why is it a grp 22? its a cheaper car so you'd expect it to rate lower. Maybe its that extra seat! that'll be 5 whiplash claims instead of 4 on the ampera! or maybe the vauxhall lifetime warranty is helping to reduce theirs.Duncan said:Hmm. Apparently I should have more seats too, but they seem to have forgotten to fit the fifth one.Code:
