Say hello to Steve Volt, the best electric/gas hybrid in all the land. Steve is a 2013 Chevy Volt with about 113K miles and a ton of spirit. On a warm day (~70° F) Steve's battery pack will take you over 45 miles (plus the ~360 mile range on his gas engine with 9 gallons of gas in his tank).
Steve was my introduction to EVs and I'll never go back. The instant torque from the electric motor in "Sport Mode" makes you feel like you're driving a sports car and not a common sedan. If you're looking to try a plug-in hybrid for a few days or a week, Steve won't disappoint!
