No other vehicle on the market is like the 2015 Chevy Volt range-extended electric car.
It runs entirely on electricity until its battery is depleted--unlike plug-in hybrids that switch on their engines for maximum power--but eliminates any range anxiety that pure battery-electric cars may produce.
It competes against all of those cars, from the Tesla Model S and Nissan Leaf battery electrics to plug-in hybrids from Toyota, Ford, and Honda.
The all-electric luxury Tesla offers two models, both with ranges over 200 miles, but starts at twice the price of the Volt.
The Nissan Leaf is the world's best-selling electric car, with more than 125,000 delivered globally, but its range is rated at 84 miles--which won't cover every trip as the Volt can.
The plug-in hybrid version of the Toyota Prius has minimal electric range (11 miles) but offers the familiar Prius virtues and an unbeatable 50-mpg combined fuel economy rating.
Ford's C-Max Energi plug-in hybrid recently saw its electric range and fuel-economy ratings cut to 19 miles and 38 mpg, but it offers five seats and more interior volume in a tall five-door compact hatchback.
Finally, the plug-in hybrid model of the Honda Accord mid-size sedan is a strong performer with 15 miles of electric range--but remains rare and is sold only in a few states.
