This should come as no surprise to you, but I am NOT a car expert. This blog entry will not include statistics, fancy engineering terms or anything techie. It’s going to simply be a review about my initial impressions driving a Chevy Volt for four days (I know, I know…lucky me).
I swear I pushed the button (no key necessary) to start the engine and immediately started to talk to myself. It’s a shame no one was in the car to video my reaction. I kept repeating “This is too cool..this is just too cool”.
The car feels “heavy” (but in a good way). It did not feel like I was driving my Versa. I felt really safe driving it.
How freakin’ cool to plug in my car at night to charge the battery ( it took 8 hours with a normal socket).
I drove for 65 km using the battery and then the car seamlessly starts to use the small gas powered engine. It’s too cool
Gas mileage on the Chevy Volt is insanely awesome.
This car is QUIET. I mean really really QUIET. It’s scary how quiet it is!!
This is the future.
I was so PROUD to be driving a car with this license plate.
I wish I owned one!!
Last but not Least:
Thanks again to the good people at General Motors who arranged for me to drive this spectacular vehicle. It was truly an experience I won’t forget.
