2013 Chevrolet Volt 4dr Hatchback (gas/electric hybrid DD)
Review
Ground breaking plugin hybrid. Uses engine to extend the range of an otherwise all electric vehicle. Overall drives well. Good acceleration and handling. Comfortable amazingly quiet ride. Can use it all electric for typical commutes. However lots of compromises. Very high price due to dual drive trains. Interior cramped to due low ceiling for reduced drag, 4 passenger seating due to battery in the cabin. Electric range works for shorter trips, but on longer trips seems to simply improve gas mileage which still isn't as good as a Prius. Hoping next rev. will fix these issues.
Favorite Features
Useful all electric range. Very smooth transition from electric to ICE (engine). Pretty good handling. Impressive acceleration from a stop.
Suggested Improvements
Center console is a usability disaster. Cramped interior. Ceiling too low. Hump between the seats too large. 4 passenger seating due to rear hump. Tailgate floor too high, trunk too small. Needs more electric range. Should have 6.6kw charger for faster charging.
