Better than my 540i
By slapshot28 on
2011 Chevrolet Volt 4dr Hatchback (gas/electric hybrid DD)
I know the title is saying a lot, but I mean it sincerely. The Volt (VIN 541) is absolutely the best car I've ever driven. It's quick, nimble, stylish, and simply incomparable from a technology standpoint.
Electric driving is amazing. From a dead stop, it's the best. And zipping around traffic on the highway is just as good.
The Volt's range extender is what makes this a practical primary vehicle--no range anxiety. Most days the car never burns a drop of gasoline (my commute is around 20 miles). But this past weekend, driving two hours and back (about 250 miles) was a piece of cake. I never even stopped for gas!
Everyone who has been in my Volt has loved it--especially me!
Quickness off the line.
Extended range, and ZERO gas consumed for everyday use.
Modern, sleek styling.
Amazing electronics/automation/remote access.
Well, if a sport version could be even quicker, I'd buy it.
(But the Volt I have now is plenty fast!)
