email@example.com 5pts The Chevy Volt PHEV can be purchased now for $35K (GM recently lowered the price $5K) with $7.5K rebate for an out the door price of $28K. It will travel 40 miles per charge with its 16.5kWhr battery before switching to gasoline hybrid mode. The ride on the Volt is very comfortable and it has the highest consumer satisfaction rating of any car sold in the United States. Why does Automobile not list the Volt as competition for the Accord PHEV? The out the door price on the Honda Accord after the rebate is still about $38K which is much more expensive than the Volt and that is why the Volt even outsells the mighty exploding Tesla.
