My wife has a Chevy Volt. More than 90% of her driving is powered by electricity, with an electric range of about 55 - 67 miles, depending on temperature and driving conditions. On long trips, the car will switch to its gas engine when the battery is used up - and then gets about 45 miles per gallon of regular gasoline. There are other manufacturers that make competing cars, and some BMW i3 cars are in that set.
We're about to go on a six hour trip, and my dilemma is whether to take the Volt, which is practically new, or my 1994 9000 Aero, which I love to drive and has really comfortable seats - but is getting old!
