Consumers have been saying they want more fuel efficient cars and the companies are listening. Perhaps more importantly, the cars seem to be living up to expectations as Chevrolet’s plug in hybrid vehicle, the Volt, has topped Consumer Report’s owner satisfaction survey for the second straight year.
The Volt, which sells for just under $40,000 before a $7,500 federal tax credit, has a devoted following among those who brag about avoiding gas stations. The car can travel about 40 miles on an electric charge before the gasoline-powered engine kicks in for additional driving range.
Other hybrid cars scored well in the survey, as well. The Toyota Camry hybrid, the Toyota Prius, and the Nissan Leaf all earned high marks from Consumer Reports, highlighting the enthusiasm that hybrid owners have for their vehicles.
