2012 Chevrolet Volt Road Test and Review
2012 Chevrolet Volt Review: Introduction
After years of watching, wondering and waiting, buyers were finally able to put a Chevrolet Volt in their driveways in 2011, and the range-extended electric hatchback is back for its second model year with a few changes and a lower starting price. As electric vehicles start to pop up from just about every major automaker, the Volt's drivetrain makes it a unique vehicle that offers a sufficient zero-emission driving range with a power-generating gasoline engine available to make longer trips possible. After spending a week in the Volt for this road test and review, it was obvious that is more of a mainstream electric vehicle than anything else currently available on the market with a great zero-emission driving but the ability to also provide a longer driving range with its power-generating gasoline engine.
