The technology in the 2017 Volt is amazing but a simple reply to the difference between an EV and hybrid is in the electric mode in the Volt you can drive around 50 miles just on battery power with no gas engine running. With the Volt after the battery power is used up the gas engine starts and can carry you another 350 miles. On a recent 3500 mile trip with mountain and freeway driving I averaged 45.1 mpg, very pleased!
