2012 Chevrolet Volt 4dr Hatchback (gas/electric hybrid DD)
I am EXTREMELY happy with the Volt.
Lots of power up the hills.
I live in the Colorado mountains and climb BIG "HILLS" every day and despite a great test drive, I was a little concerned (if an electric car had a problem it seems logical to me that the problems would be in climbing the mountains).
I am over my concerns!
The pick-up and power on the hills is great. Driving this car feels a little like a sports car.
I think that the distribution of the battery adds weight (down low) which it turns, adds stability and handling.
At present, I am at just less than 300 mpg.
In summary, a SUPER BIG A+++++ to CHEVROLET AND THE VOLT.
My first Chevy after 35 years of driving, and its a good one!!!
My favorite freaturs are the performanace, handling, acceleration and of course, fuel economy.
I would like to see a lower price for the Volt mainly becuase this is the one thing that might stop someone from buying one (or even doing a test drive).
For myself, I am more than happy with the Value.
If I just got an "electric car" for the sticker price, it is expensive.
In my opinion, however, this is not just an "electric car"... it's a very cool car that just happens to be electric.
