2012 Chevrolet Volt 4dr Hatchback (gas/electric hybrid DD)


OK, it is not a vehicle to be reviewed like all others, i.e. zero to 60, handling, Corinthian leather, etc.
It is just a completely different concept of driving a car.
The thrill exists because it uses virtually no gasoline, unless you drive over 40 miles. Even then it seemlessly transfers to a 35 mpg Chevrolet. But the fun is keeping it in electric and Chevrolet has a wonderful panoply of buttons and dials for your pleasure to fiddle your way to quiet, electric bliss.
The average person fills up about every month, and now I get 15 mpg in everyday use.
This is the perfect car for the two car commuter family.
Fit and finish are adequate and the style is Prius modern, but who cares.

Best Features

Silence in the cab. No more gasoline from God knows where. Terrific graphics.

15mpg in everyday use? I think you made a mistake. What did you really mean? Glad you love the car. I'm seriously thinking about it.
