My daughter and I picked up our Volt on Friday, February 11th from New York and drove it back 750 miles to Lansing, MI. We drove 60 to 80 mph and even in a snow storm. You would never know that it was an electric car if the engine would not have turn on and back off.
We picked up the car at 2:30 p.m. from Atlantic Chevrolet in Bay Shore on Long Island New York. Our salesman was...” --VoltFanSite
“I'm a student based out of SF, and this car is absolutely perfect for both city driving and longer drives back home down the I-5 to Southern California.
The primary reason for my purchasing this vehicle was mileage (it's so awesome -- I add about 10 gallons to my car about every two weeks, and I drive a significant amount for a non-commuting student, i.e. I'll put over 12500...” --Lola
“I have friends with Priuses (Prions?) up to 2007 and all report about the same mileage as our old recycled 2001 model. We get 50 to 55 mpg in the summer, far less in the winter, and average about 43-44 mpg year-round here in the frigid midwest, burning 10% mileage-robbing ethanol. If it's not a plug-in yet, what's the big deal?” --bobdowser
“I love this car! I commute 130 miles round-trip to work 5 days a week. In 2 1/2 years I've put about 92k miles on it, and it continues to run great. This car has changed the way I drive (in a good way!). I average about 50 miles per gallon. It's stylish, it has zip when I need it, it's roomy and overall is the best vehicle I've ever owned. I recommend it to anyone that asks!...” --cherieb
“I am a realtor. It's customary for realtors to have SUVs or big European cars, and I didn't want to join in that game, so I went looking at hybrids. My Camry is roomy, runs smoothly with good pick-up, and has enough trunk space for my open house signs and all the other 'stuff' that I have to carry around for my work. The Trip Information display helps to visually keep track...” --Aileen
“This is one of the best buys in America.
You can get $60,000 of enginnering in a $30,000(or less) vehicle.
With some talented driving and a few add-ons, I can get 54 MPG in a 4,000 pound SUV. That's not a typo, 54 MPG in city driving is more than possible.
This SUV really shines below 40 miles per hour when the electric motor does most ( or all ) of the work.
At highway speeds, the gas...” --gpsman1
“I purchased this car for commuting in Southern California about 18 months ago. As advertised, it has been a very reliable car. It averages about 47.5 mpg in a mix of city and freeway driving. My wife and I both agree that it was a very good purchase, and not just because of the mpg either. It's fun to drive and has ample space in the back -- more than a Camry, for example. Prices for the...” --kpennett
“I rented a Highlander when my Prius was getting a body fix (bad driving me). I really liked the comfort of the vehicle but for me not worth the sacrifice in economy. My Prisuses are very comfortable and loaded with as many extras as the Highlanders but with a good 10 miles or more per gallon. Not even close.” --saintjerome
“Have you ever wanted to get 1000 miles per gallon? No, it is not a typo, it may become a reality, and soon. The Aptera(aptera.com) a small alien looking three wheeled car should be available soon. There are two versions of the car, all electric and hybrid. It has flip doors and is extremely aero dynamic. It goes 0-60 in ten seconds and can go at highway speeds. The electric can go up to 120 on...” --eco2020
“I bought this to replace a Lincoln Navigator. I had some concerns that the 4 cylinder engine would not be powerful enough for long highway trips, steep grades, etc. but these proved unfounded. The engine is a bit noisy if you need to step on it to accelerate rapidly but one gets used to this. If I drive carefully and try to economize fuel, I can easily get 31 mpg or even more. If I drive...” --nmerritt
