It may be more expensive than rivals, but the Chevrolet Volt is leaps and bounds ahead of the one that came before. Two electric motors provide 149hp and pair with a 101hp gasoline motor for combined drive. Combined, Chevrolet says owners can achieve 108 miles to the gallon, with 53 miles on electric power only. Whilst more expensive than rivals, standard specification is impressive – the Volt offers climate control, WiFi hotspot, Android Auto, and Apple CarPlay in LT trim. Available safety features includes a reverse camera, blind spot monitoring, and a full suite of airbags.
