With the smooth and quiet ride of an electric car on short trips and the ability to fuel up on gas whenever you need to go long distances, the Volt gives you the best of both worlds. Need to cover a lot of ground? Get 35-40 mpg while enjoying shiftless acceleration. Need a lot of room for cargo? The second row folds flat and the hatchback style trunk makes it easy to load bulky gear. Need the car for a long stay? Many hotels or Airbnb rentals let you charge overnight for free to minimize your travel expenses.
Don’t worry about recharging the battery on return. The Volt will be delivered with at least a half charge (15 -20 miles of range) so you can experience fully electric driving. A charge cable is provided in the trunk (under the false floor) that can charge the battery overnight from a regular outlet, providing 30-40 miles of range. The 9 gallon gas tank will be full and provides 250-300 miles before you have to refill. Once the battery runs out, the car automatically turns on the engine as needed and drives like a hybrid.
