Scott and Vance look at the original Chevrolet Volt and compare it with the new Volt. Scott had a 2013 Volt 1 and now has a 2017 Volt 2. What are the real differences and are they KühlToys?
They are both range extended electrics, and with less than 60 miles of range on battery only, they sort of compete with the BMW i3, Nissan Leaf, Canceled Toyota Rav4 Electric and Ford Focus Electric among others.
You could argue the Volt’s compete with the Plug in Prius or “PIP” and the Ford Fusion, or even the new 59 MPG Hyundai Ioniq hybrid. The PIP and Fusion can’t go more than 20 miles on battery alone, so they didn’t make the cut.
With the onboard generator, you probably don’t ever have to plug in but then again you could buy a Prius right?
