The 2018 Chevrolet Volt achieves a number of milestones without the usual hyperbole that sometimes surrounds lofty manufacturer claims. Its all-electric range of 53 miles is real, more than double that of the Toyota Prius Prime and Ford C-Max Energi. A $7,500 federal tax credit helps ease the Volts $34,000 starting price.
New Features and Revisions
The 2018 Volt LT now offers the Driver Confidence Package that adds side blind-zone alert, rear cross-traffic alert and rear park assist. The LT trim loses its leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob, while the Premier trim gains a heated steering wheel that is optional on the LT.
