2011 Chevrolet Volt: No Charging on Electric Avenue

August 23, 2011


I may live on Electric Avenue, but I can't charge the Chevy Volt here. With no power to my personal garage, I can drive the car home from the office on a full charge, but it switches to gas just six miles into my morning commute back to the office.

If you knew you would have access to a charging station at work, but never be able to charge at home, would you still consider a plug-in hybrid?
