Hybrids and electric vehicles are a little hard to come by in the Black Hills, which is a pity. They're awfully fun to drive, they make for very cheap (and infrequent) stops at the gas pump, and it feels nice to be green while you're driving in the green (er, you know - the forests and such).
That's why we're happy to share our black 2013 Chevy Volt when we're not using it. If you haven't driven a Volt before, it's a great experience: super snappy response, and a great car for day trips. It runs solely on battery for about 40 miles, and then switches over to gas (it gets about 40 mpg once the battery is depleted). With battery and the small gas tank combined, the car has just short of a 400-mile range. We have a basic travel power adapter you can take with you that plugs in at any regular 110 volt wall outlet and charges the car from empty to full in about 10 hours. There are a few 240 volt chargers around the Black Hills - mostly in Rapid City - that'll charge the car in about 4 hours.
As far as comfort, we've been super happy with it. It's a little on the small side, so if you're a group of six-foot-five dudes, you might want to grab another vehicle. For a typical family, though, it's great: I'm six-foot-three, and it's a perfectly comfortable ride for me and a few friends. Just keep in mind that it'll it'll only seat four total, plus a modest amount of cargo room in the rear under the hatchback. It has two front and one rear power outlets for phones and gadgets, with bluetooth connectivity, an audio aux port and a USB port. It's got satellite radio and a CD player, if you prefer that sort of thing.
Don't hesitate to contact us if you have any questions. We love the Volt, and we're happy to chat with people about it.
