The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating

7.8
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2014 Chevrolet Volt is one of the best plug-in vehicles on the market, and it costs $5,000 less than it did last year. The 2013 is the greenest car you can buy--if you can live with between 70 and 100 miles of driving range on a full battery charge.
