Save on gas with this hybrid-electric Volt. You can get over ~40 miles on just electricity or up to 300 miles with a combination of electricity and gas. Rides great and has all the amenities. Tinted windows also keeps the CA sun from making you hot. With the Sport mode, this thing really goes.
If you hate the silicon valley gridlock, my Volt has the HOV access stickers so you can ride in the carpool lane.
