I reviewed the 2012 Chevrolet Volt on Gasoline-ElectricCars.com. Below is an excerpt of that review. You can read the entire thing at this link.
Here’s the kicker, though: if you live in an urban or suburban environment, routinely commute to work alone, and are economically in the middle or upper income bracket, this car is made for you. As a second car for a commuter or an only car for a single person or new couple, it’s awesome.
That’s because this car is built specifically for someone who drives less than 20 miles each way per day, but may occasionally want to go further to get to grandma’s house or hit the beach for the weekend.
That means that if, like me, you live in rural Wyoming.. the car is definitely not for you. Especially if you have two children still in car seats. Four of us in this car was not a great fit.
