Like many, we are a two car family.
Working from home means that my car is “the family car” that holds all of us and that we take anytime the whole family is going somewhere. My wife has a sixty five mile or so round trip commute every day, so she has the more practical commuter car that gets better mileage.
This review could be summed up easily by my wife who told me, “Out of all the cars you’ve been given to review, this is the first one I hated to see go.”
A huge thank you to Chevy for giving us a 2012 Chevy Volt for a week as an extended test drive. We would have never fully appreciated the car without having that length of time to see how it really fit into our lives.
In my opinion, this is the direction all car companies need to be moving. A mix of electric and gas that works together to give you the most driving for your dollars.
This is what our dashboard looked like when we returned the car. Over the week we drove 405.5 miles (with a lot of those being on the highway) and only used 5.3 gallons of gas which comes out to just over 75 mpg. Those are real numbers and when you see it like that it is very impressive!
