- We've gotten a taste of the future. Very impressive engineering.
- A real car. Just happens to run beautifully on electricity a lot of the time.
- Treat it like a cell phone. Plug it in when when you go to bed, and start the next day all charged up.
- Large electric capacity. 35 miles per charge all-electric under good conditions. We drove it for a week, charging it up every night, without ever using any gasoline.
- Back up gasoline engine always ready to kick in when battery runs down, which eliminates range anxiety.
- Seamless transition between electricity and gasoline.
- Great, quiet, whoosh of acceleration under battery power.
- Plenty of power for acceleration.
- Comfortable, soft-ish ride.
- Solid, stable handling.
- Quiet in electric mode.
- Hatchback practicality.
- Blows away plug-in Prius in battery capacity.
- $7500 Federal tax credit.
- Electric range effected by weather, use of climate control, and driving style.
- Can be a lot less than 35 miles under certain conditions, especially cold weather.
- Reliability unknown, compared to well-tested Prius.
- Small gasoline engine can be a little loud and buzzy when it kicks in.
- Some body lean -- ride is tuned more for city driving/comfort than handling.
- White center console's attempted "futuristic" look a bit tacky.
- Desperately needs a rear window wiper.
- Visibility limited due to thick A pillars and C pillars.
- Optional backup camera should be considered a necessity.
- Back up camera is necessary, and should be standard instead of a $600 option.
- Should have keyless entry for $41K.
- Noisy suspension, especially in the rear.
- Too quiet, making it dangerous for pedestrians.
- Gasoline vehicles just seem so "dirty" after driving the Volt!
