Best car for the money, and maybe beyond that.
I love the smooth ride and acceleration. I traded my BMW 328i for the Volt and the ride is similar. The acceleration and cornering is similar. I only miss a couple of things. The top doesn't retract into the trunk and the lights don't turn into my curves.
Too many electric cars rely on pure electricity and I suppose that's fine if you stay in town. BMW, in order to get a rating in CA, made sure that the electric range exceeded the gas range. Bad idea on long trips if you don't want to drive miles out of the way and stop for 2 hour lunch breaks. Even TESLA, a car I love, doesn't have nearly enough charging stations yet to solve for my needs. ONLY Chev. VOLT, allows you to get respectable 40 miles on electric, and then another 380 miles on gas at about 35 MPG. No other electric car comes close.
My driving is 80% to 90% on gas and my lifetime average on the car (over 60K miles) is about 52 MPG. And that comes with performance! Until someone comes up with something better (and they haven't in 2017-- I checked), I'm a VOLT guy. :) Get me all around town totally on electric, but get me to Alaska, Florida and New York without long pauses or driving out of the way for charges. After I bought mine, I got a friend to buy 2 more.
