KBB Expert Review

KBB Editors' Overview

By KBB.com Editors - Updated Date: 9/5/2013


Chevrolet's Volt for 2014 is more than a hybrid and more than a pure electric. Actually, it's a bit of both. Unlike most hybrids, the Volt can run at freeway speeds on pure electric, but only for limited range of about 30-40 miles. When the battery pack is depleted, a small gasoline engine kicks on to run a generator that powers the electric motor while simultaneously recharging the battery pack. With the gasoline engine running, the Volt's estimated range is increased to 380 miles and its fuel economy estimated around 40 mpg. Unlike many electric and hybrid offerings the Volt's styling isn't awkward or geeky, and its interior is one of the coolest we've seen in or out of a hybrid.

You'll Like This Car If...

The 2014 Chevy Volt delivers on its promise to be green by providing a pure electric mode up to nearly 40 miles. Unlike electric cars, the Volt won't leave you stranded once the battery runs down, so long as there is fuel in the tank.

You May Not Like This Car If...

Even with a price reduction and tax credits, the 2014 Volt doesn't come cheap. The Volt's back seat is small, and only holds two people, limiting its usefulness to many urban buyers.

What's New for 2014

The Chevrolet Volt sees no major changes for 2014.

Driving It Driving Impressions

As an electric, the 2014 Chevy Volt's motor offers up a big serving of torque right out of the gate. From a stop, our Volt sprinted to life with enough thrust to push us into our seats as it silently reached 50 mph. The absence of engine noise and gearshifts does take some getting used to. Even when the gasoline engine kicks on, it doesn't rev relative to road speed. As for the Volt's driving characteristics, we'd hesitate to call them sporty, but the Cruz-based platform does provide decent handling and a rather smooth ride. The Volt's electric power steering is responsive and direct, nicely weighted without being too vague at highway speeds or too heavy when parallel parking. Although GM claims the Volt's electric range at 38 miles, the actual range will vary hugely depending on circumstances.

Favorite Features

DELAYED START AND DEPARTURE TIME MODE
Using information supplied by your local electricity provider, you can program the Volt to start recharging its battery pack when rates are at their lowest. And if you tell it when you plan to leave in the morning, the car will automatically schedule the charging process to ensure it's ready.

VOLT SMARTPHONE APP
The OnStar MyLink app lets you check your Volt's battery level, tire pressure, available electric range, lock/unlock the doors and start the A/C system to pre-cool the interior, all from your smartphone. You can control charging rate and get a text or e-mail alert when the battery is "full."
