Baby is just two days old
By richardnbaton on


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


My second day driving it to work. Loved it from the start. Quiet.
First day I got 41.3 miles on battery. I didn't use any ac/heat or radio.
On the way home got 54 miles on 1.2 gallons of gas. I drove 50 mph on the frontage road (no stops). My efficiency reach 97%.
When I got back on the interstate I went upto 65.

Second day, I ran the heater for a little while, this was before I realized that Fan Only put out enough heat. Made it to work with 38.6 miles on battery and .36 gals of gas.

The car drive is excellent. The interior is sharp and rich. No cheap plastic parts.
The Energy ball makes it like a game to drive.

Best Features

Energy savings. Center Stack Console, specifically the feed back provided by the Energy Usage screen. Until Solar Garages become practicle, this car is the best bet for the furture.

Worst Features

More arm room on the driver right side. Maybe make the center glove box smaller. Or use slide away cup holders.
