What it is: The 2018 Volt is the continuance of Chevrolet's second-generation, extended-range electric vehicle. The four-door hatchback can run solely on electric power for shorter trips, while an onboard gas generator makes the Volt's overall range similar to a regular gas-powered car. Competitors include the Ford C-Max Energi and Toyota Prius Prime, though neither offers the 53-mile electric-only range of the Volt.
An LT Driver Confidence Package includes rear parking sensors, rear cross-traffic alert and blind spot warning.
