Most of you trip on the Volt will be done on electric and if you like to make longer trips the Volt will switch over to gas automagically. Its pearl white with some bumps and dents. But it is good to go for any trip that you would like to take. Couple things to make your life easier while renting one is to have the Turo app on your smartphone. Two have the plugshare app on your smartphone. And three have a smartphone and not a flip phone. Also extending rental is wonderful but if you wait a few hours before it is due to extend the rental someone else will be renting the car. Also please don't smoke in the car.
