There are creature comforts that would improve the Chevy Volt especially the rear seating leg room and rear seat headroom but those are not my main focus.
In what ways could you improve the car in terms of Performance? I believe that the Volt is sometimes overlooked as an Electric Car. The Toyota Prius gets looked at as an Electric car most of the times while it is mostly a Hybrid without the addition of the Prius Prime. If you put the BMW I3 alongside the Chevy Volt as well as the CMax Energi and Prius Prime, I would say that GM positioned it right in the middle of the range assisted market. They have the second highest EV range of the group, they have comfortable upfront seating and overall seating capacity but why aren’t they selling better than the Prius Prime?
I used a website called Nadaguides to pull the data necessary for the rest of this story from:
The comparison of the top-level offerings from each of the 4 cars listed above showed that the Chevy Volt is very competitively priced when you factor in the 5-year cost of ownership, the car is above average in fuel economy and its MPGe rating. If you want to know more about the MPG ratings see here.
