2019 Chevrolet Volt vs. Its Competition

2019 Chevrolet Volt

The BMW i3 with the range extender engine offers highly futuristic looks and an awesome interior, but the high price of entry and low overall range will put some buyers off.

Chevy’s awesome Bolt EV offers great all-electric range and city-friendly space, but no option for gas extension.

The oddly-styled Honda Clarity Plug-in offers a competitive price and similar range to the Volt, not to mention more space.

Hyundai’s smartly-packaged Ioniq Plug-in is a value superstar and bests the Volt in mpg and mpge figures.

Finally, the Toyota Prius Prime adds a plug-in option to the world’s most popular hybrid.
