Editor's Overview

If you were sitting on the fence before deciding to buy a new Chevy Volt, you may have made the right move. The all-new 2016 Chevrolet Volt is quieter, more powerful, quicker, better to drive, gets even better fuel economy, and can go farther on a charge. It can even seat five people. So, now what are you waiting for?

This is the best hybrid car on the market, bar none -- it allows long trips (which EV-only cars can't do), while still allowing mostly-EV driving for normal days.

Pros: Highly reliable car, uses almost no gas (in the summer I can go for months without getting gas), handles well, lots of good safety options. Cons: *really* needs a rear-window washer/wiper, and has poor visibility to the rear.

It's a hybrid model so it uses both electricity and gas.

I love my Chevy Volt. It is comfortable for four, reliable and uses very little gasoline. It is difficult sometimes to find a place where we can charge the electric battery but the gas mileage is quite good.

- David K

It sames money by not having to buy gas and you can use the carpool lane.

It gets great fuel economy with It's Plug In hybrid motor. Almost 60 miles to a charge. Can drive virtually everyday on electric with no use of gasoline. It has great get up and go. I have no complaints
