The Chevy VOLT is known as a "range extended electric vehicle" (not a "hybrid"). It can either be run entirely on electricity (it just plugs into any conventional 110v residential outlet) or it can operate entirely on unleaded gasoline. This means you don't ever have to plug in the Chevy VOLT at all if you don't want to. However, If you do decide to plug it in every night it will get 70 - 110 MPG! (Conversely, If you choose not to ever to plug the VOLT in at all you can expect to get around 42 MPG). For reference, cars like the TESLA and the Nissan LEAF MUST be plugged in to operate.
The Chevy VOLT (as of December 2016) is also now the fastest selling, most popular electric car in the world (with nearly double the sales of its closest competitor, the TESLA S for October and November 2016). This is a really cool, beautiful, (nearly) BRAND NEW car (flawlessly maintained and hand waxed bi-monthly). Very fast and fun to drive! No "range anxiety"! No need to plug it in for any reason if you don't want to.
The Chevy VOLT also has some really cool technology too! The wheels are always powered by electricity from a huge 800 pound battery under the car. This is why the VOLT feels (and drives) like a really big, heavy muscle car. And when the battery runs out (you get about 50 miles from an overnight charge) a small gasoline generator under the hood (right where a regular gasoline powered car's engine is located) automatically turns on and starts recharging (and maintaining) the battery level while you're driving around. (And you'll never even notice it).
The car is a very heavy car and weighs nearly 4000 pounds. It also has 10 airbags! This is the 4th Chevy VOLT I've owned since 2014. I think the Chevy VOLT is the safest, smartest car on the road in my opinion. (And I've never liked or purchased Chevrolet cars before. I don't like Chevy's. But this is not like any Chevrolet I've ever seen or driven before.) Three people have purchased Chevy Volts as a direct result of renting this car from me since (June 2016).
Depending on how far you drive everyday and the lease payment you negotiate on a new VOLT ~ you can sometimes pay out even less overall money every month than what you're paying currently for just gasoline in the car you're driving now. And did I mention it drives like a 60's muscle car! (Zero to sixty in 7.1 seconds). Yup. It sticks to the road like glue (it's actually quite amazing in the snow ~ like those big FWD Cadillacs from the 70's). It also has nearly 300 feet pounds of torque!
Very comfortable for four people (including the driver) even on longer trips. However, the 2017 VOLT is NOT the most comfortable car in the world for FIVE total occupants (they WILL all fit, however). The only electric car I own that's even more fun to drive than this 2017 Chevy VOLT is my 2014 Mercedes Benz "B" Class Electric Drive. (Driving the Mercedes is like driving a "Rolex Watch" and it has a Tesla power plant. It's just an amazingly flawless vehicle to drive.) I'm not super impressed with the Nissan LEAF BTW but I do own one of those as well.

Shawn is very knowledgeable about his cars. Volt was such a great car to drive around.
I Don't Know Where To Start With Shawn Or His Car. Definitely The Sweetest Guy Ever! He Was Very Informative About The Cars He Has And How They Work. I've Never Driven Or Gotten Close To An Electric Car, This Was My First Time And It Was Awesome. No Problems At All. It Was Nice Meeting Him He's Very Sweet. I WILL Be Renting From Him Again Very Soon .
I loved every second! Blown away by Shawn's service and vehicle. He met me at the airport and was easy to work with. The car is new and it runs like a champion. You wouldn't be able to tell that it's an electric/ gas car. Highly recommended!!!
