Editor's Overview

Unique and stylish, the 2013 Chevrolet Volt electric plug-in hybrid runs purely on battery power. However, once its battery pack is depleted (after 25 to 50 miles), the Volt's gasoline engine kicks on to run a generator, powering the electric motors and helping recharge the batteries. This extends the Volt's range an additional 300 miles or more, eliminating "range anxiety."

My amazing Chevy volt is the best!

My Chevy volt it is amazing. It was obviously a flag ship vehicle for Chevrolet. I have had nothing but good luck with this vehicle. And now that it is paid off I only pay about $10 a month to drive it as a local commuter vehicle. It is extremely comfortable and there is plenty of space to load supplies with the seats folded down and using the hatchback.

It is a very nice car for the money. Keyless entry, touch screen, Bluetooth, and great design inside and out, and it saves you money on gas!

I love this car! It is a plug-in hybrid/electric vehicle with a backup generator that runs on gas. It saves me so much money on gas because I can mostly drive to work and back on the electric charge. It has a very nice interior for a base model and fancy infotainment system. No complaints other than I wish the battery charge could go a little farther.

- Jacqueline C

It's the perfect car for those who want to be environmentally friendly in their daily life, but still need the convenience of a gas station somewhat regularly.

I love my volt. It's great for both short trips around town and still comfortable enough to go on a road trip with. The interior is a bit small and people sometimes have problems getting out of the back seat, but as the driver (and being a small person in general) it's not something I have to worry about.
