With Chevy Volts, you never have to worry about the battery running out. When the battery gets low, a gas motor comes on, giving you unlimited range. In the summer, the Volt gets all the way into Boston on a charge, with free charging at Logan, the Pru and Government Center. In the winter, about 30 miles...batteries don't like the cold and you have the electric heat on with headlights and wipers. All in all, the Volt sips both gas and electricity. Very high quality car and software. Looks good too.

What You Need to Know

Description:

2 Chevy Volts

Other Benefits:

Flicking off OPEC and making the power to run your car is unimaginably empowering.

Maintenance Requirements:

Almost none. We have 15,000 miles on each Volt and they both still have 80% oil life remaining.

My Motivation:

Being able to have my own transportation...no matter what.

Advice:

Do the math. In your situation, PV + EV may actually be FREE for you compared to your current expenses.
