I would be so mad if I only got 50 mpg. I would be mad if I only got 100 mpg. I drive a 2014 Chevy Volt and I average 280 mpg on my daily 56 mile commute. Most Volt owners that drive less than 40 miles per day average 900 mpg. I paid $22,195 after Fed and. Ca state rebates. I can travel 48 miles on a charge that costs about a dollar, then the gas generator comes on giving the Volt unlimited range, unlike pure EV vehicles. The Volt is really fast, handles great, and drives silently except for tire noise on the pavement. Why buy a Prius when you can do so much better in the mpg category with a chevy Volt? I just don't get it. The chevy Volt won the highest customer satisfaction rating two years in a row for a good reason, in fact probably for the reasons I just stated above. Where did the Prius C, regular Prius, plug in Prius, whatever, rank in customer satisfaction?Report it
As I average about 100 miles a day the Volt wouldn't save me any money as the 1 gallon saved using the electric is more than offset by the cost of the 35mpg vs the 55+ I get now. As the tax incentives and vehicle cost for me don't bring it into the range of my Prius C I make out better with its hybrid system. If the Volt had the range of the Nissan Leaf perhaps something to consider - but right now from an electric standpoint it's too short for the cost.Report it
