Chevrolet Volt review

is it? The Chevrolet Volt is a range-extending car. Electricity always the car, but unlike other vehicles, such as the Nissan or Renault Fluence, the Volt has a petrol engine that additional electricity to power the for longer journeys.

The Volt, will go for as long as you have in the tank, just like a car.

Its clever technology removes range-anxiety from and that’s why we gave the virtually Vauxhall Ampera our Green Car of the 2011 award .

This is the first time driven the Volt in the UK, albeit a model.

What’s it like to Pretty good actually. The 273lb ft of torque is available from the off, so performance is around town.

Refinement is too, with the car virtually for the 50 or so miles you travel in electric-only Even when the 1.4 petrol does kick in, engine is never an issue.

The steering take a little getting to. You have to continually make corrections to keep the car going

For what worth, though, we reckon the has the Volt beaten for looks.

is simply not an issue – the Volt can go 340 between fuel stops – and is a doddle once you get used to it into your regular

You’ll like the running too. While electricity vary, it’s estimated a full charge will around £1.50. The Volt is from road tax and the London Charge, while company car tax be charged at 5%.

Still, at £28,545 after the Government grant, the Volt is an car – a Ford Focus or VW could more practicality and driving fun for a £10,000 less.
