Chevy Hit It Out of the Ball Park

2013 Chevrolet Volt 4dr Hatchback (gas/electric hybrid DD)


Incredibly electronically sophisticated vehicle.
Best hybrid/electrical car on the road today.
I installed a 240 volt charge station to speed up the recharging process, plus it reduces the cost of each full charge from 13kw used to 10kw.
For me in Calif., it costs $1.20 for each full charge.
I normally get 43-48 miles on each charge and on gas 41 mpg (light foot on the throttle).
Assuming 10k miles/yr and 10% of the miles on gas, the total cost would be about $460/yr or a $2,000/yr savings over our other gas costs for 10k miles/yr.
The volt cost $32k after all rebates.
Do the math...this car is a no brainer!

Update 3/22/17: No problems with the car after four years. Continues to perform flawlessly. I would never buy a non-electric car after my experience with the Volt. The only maintenance costs are rotating the tires each year and changing the oil, although the oil does not need to be changed as often as I do it (annually). I could probably go two years between oil changes, but that just seems to long to me.
