I got the Volt after owning a Ford Fusion Hybrid. I loved the Fusion but I had wanted a Volt when they were having all the trouble with the battery. Most or all of the problems have been corrected in the 2016 and I now prefer the Volt. My EV miles have done nothing but go up (65 right now). The ride is almost as good as the Fusion. The car is fun to drive and it exceeds everything they promise in performance. A bit more room in the back and power seats would improve it.

2016 Chevrolet Volt - LT
We own a 2014 Volt and love it. I did not buy the Volt for gas mileage. I bought it because it is the car of the future.
The electric motors drive the wheels directly. So, It does not have a "transmission" . You do not have to worry about getting stranded if the battery gets too low. Because the gas engine will start and run an electrical generator. The gas engine does not charge the battery The only maintenance in over 2 years has been oil changes for the gas engine. we plug it in at night.
