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


I like my tag line better than Chevy's "More Car than Electric" - it says it all so much more succinctly. I've always enjoyed the smooth and quiet driving experience of an electric car. Volt delivers that in spades. It also goes beyond a mere e-car by having range extending gas for when the battery runs low. So it's the best of both worlds. Even better, the transition from E to G is so smooth - way better than other hybrids I've owned or driven. The total package is so well thought out - truly amazing.

Best Features

Quiet, smooth, incredible acceleration off the line. Terrific controls, style, and quality. Unbelievable efficiency that can help end our dependency on imported oil.

Worst Features

Could use a little more rear headroom and space for a fifth passenger.
