2013 Chevrolet Volt 4dr Hatchback (gas/electric hybrid DD)
5000 miles, 5 months, and 11 gallons of fuel
into owning the 2013 Volt, I'm amazed at how impressed I am with this car.
I nearly always make my 43 mile round trip commute without using a drop of gasoline and only about $1.40 worth of electricity.
However, the best part about owning it is how well it is engineered and the smooth and silent surge of power from the electric drivetrain.
Although the sticker price will scare a few people away the real price after rebates was just slightly less than a similarly equipped Honda Accord would have been.
My electric range has been between 34 miles on a cold day in January and 50 mildly driven miles on a warm spring day.
Smooth, silent drivetrain;
; flexibility to run on electricity or gas; no range anxiety
Allow drivers to set the default drive mode setting to sport vice normal.
