The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.8
7.4
TCC’s Bottom Line
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. If you can afford it, the 2013 Chevrolet Volt is one of only a handful of plug-in hybrids on the market, and among the best.
