2013 Chevrolet Volt 4dr Hatchback (gas/electric hybrid DD)
Traded in a C5 Vette for a 2013 red metallic Volt.
Have driven about 400 miles in 10 days.
Love the car - used 0.7 gal. Gas.
Chevy had a $2,000 rebate, coupled with a $7,500 Fed tax rebate and a $2,000 state tax rebate, takes the cost down to $30,000.
Factor in about $2,000 fuel savings per year, and the car makes economic sense.
Build quality is excellent, as is integration of car operation, electronics and screen displays.
Also right thing to do for the environment to cut emissions.
With our local electric rates, cost per gas gal equivalent is about $0.70.
Car is smooth and provides a pleasant driving experience, plus you are driving the future, not the past.
Smooth operation, seamless integration of gas and electric power.
Screen displays and controls very well thought out.
Also our city provides free downtown parking and charging in prime spots.
Front seat comfort is good, back seats a little cramped with a tall person in front seats.
