It’s safe to say the Chevrolet Volt is the boldest American car offered for sale in recent memory. Bolder even than the GM EV-1 that came before it, because the Volt isn’t merely a large experiment, it’s a real extended-range electric vehicle aimed at real-world conditions and sold to real-world buyers. Chevy’s new wondercar returns astonishing fuel economy, equivalent to more than 90 mpg by official tests. Don’t call it a hybrid, though: the EV uses an onboard gasoline motor, a high-performance four-cylinder, only to recharge the battery when it gets too low (and in very rare circumstances, to kick a little extra power to the driven wheels). With this system, two torquey electric motors can propel the innovative Volt up to 35 miles before the range extender, managed by a complex computer system, even fires up. All this techno-wizardry is entirely transparent from behind the wheel, giving drivers a little taste of the future without having to compromise any of the driving experience of a “regular” car.
