The Chevrolet Volt has three big changes for 2013: an increase in the EPA-rated EV range partly attributed to a slightly bigger battery, the addition of a new Hold mode, and eligibility for carpool lane access in California and New York. The 149-horsepower extended-range electric vehicle can travel up to 38 miles as an EV, and the lithium-ion battery is now 16.5 kilowatt-hours. The Hold mode, already a feature on the international-market Volt and Opel/Vauxhall Ampera, lets drivers trigger the 1.4-liter four-cylinder range-extending engine as seen fit. This allows for the preservation of battery charge. Recharging the Volt takes anywhere from four to 16 hours to go from depleted to full, depending on charger power. As one of the most aerodynamically efficient vehicles in the General Motors lineup, the four-seat hatchback is EPA-rated for 35/40 mpg city/highway when the 1.4-liter engine is switched on. Eight standard airbags swarm the cabin, and available safety technologies include front and rear park assist, a backup camera, and forward collision and lane departure warning systems. The Chevrolet Volt is covered by a 3-year/36,000-mile bumper-to-bumper warranty, while the hybrid-drive components carry a warranty period of 8 years or 100,000 miles (10 years or 150,000 miles in CARB-compliant states).

Reviews and Ratings
Overall
Pros Cons
Electric drive; plug in battery; excellent gas mileage Visibility poor to rear & rear-sides; not helped by camera
Lots of storage with rear seats folded - carries all sorts of things Difficult getting in / out; hand-hold above door would help.
Engine drive train - electric motor is amazing technology When you do need gas, rarely, you must use premium.
Acceleration from stop is amazing: 100% torque right away Takes too long to recharge: 8-9 hours
Fuel economy: 207 mpg. i pay 2 cents per mile in electricity costs. Suspension - no better than a $20,000 car over bumps
Vehicle is solid & well built Protective skirt on front of car is too low-hits driveway
The seats are comfortable making the ride seem better. Missing a few luxury items for a $44,000 vehicle
Driving dynamics; drives like a sports car Heating system when running on battery power
The way it drives - great handling, ride, steering, brakes A pillars - compromised visibility from passenger seat
Sporty look - other electric vehicles are dumpy looking Head lights - brightness and beam pattern - weak
