The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.4
7.8
TCC’s Bottom Line
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. 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.
