Pro: ~50 miles on a full charge, plenty of power for just about every driving style. comfortable interior for front seat occupants

Con's: Back seat comfort non-existent unless under the age of 10.

Pro: Great overall fuel mileage.

I've had mine just under 2 months and couldn't be happier. Been trying to pick at the car and find little things wrong. I love the fact that I have driven the car over 1,000 miles but have only had to purchase 3.8 gallons of gas. Some of that was required due to the cold temperature and the engine being run to make sure the battery was warm enough. Also to provide some interior heat.

An average trip for me is close to 50 miles round trip. Some times I make the trip with zero gas consumed, and some days (colder ones) the total gas consumption is something like .03 gallons. A far cry from the 4-5 gallons I used to burn making the same trip in my pickup truck.

Lastly, If you are over 6' tall you will actually fit in the front seat as either driver or passenger. Good luck in a Prius.

Question A potentbuyer has some questions

I'm deciding between a Volt or Fusion Energ, cuz my next car will be a plug-in. I test drove the Volt today and was impressed. I'm told that the Volt does not come with adaptive cruise control and similar safety features (lane deviation warning, etc.). I checked the Chevrolet web site and this does seem to be correct. Anyone know why?
