Volt is to range-extended electric cars what Prius is to hybrids: The gold standard. Re-styled inside and out, Volt looks the part of a next-decade trendsetter. The powertrain was re-engineered with upgraded batteries and motors that extend fossil-less driving from 38 miles to 53 miles, after which the gas engine fires up to keep the vehicle going (for a total of 420 miles). Recharge in 4.5 hours. Interiors are more logically rendered and feature 4G Wi-Fi, Apple CarPlay, and standard rear-vision camera. Available Lane Keep Assist, Side Blind Zone Alert, Forward Collision Alert, and front automatic braking options help avoid accidents. It's a high-tech electric car when you want it and a long-distance gas-sipper when you need it.
