The Chevrolet Volt was one of the most efficient midsize cars available in 2011. It came with a manageable electric-only range that offered 25 to 50 miles. Also, the 2011 Chevrolet Volt featured a gasoline engine as a backup. When running on only gasoline, the Volt gets up to 40 mpg on the highway and 35 mpg in the city, which is strong enough for the class. On the other hand, when running on electricity, it receives an MPGE rating of 90 on the highway and 95 mpg in the city.

The standard equipment of the car includes touchscreen navigation, cloth upholstery, a Bose stereo, automatic climate control, and Bluetooth. All in all, the 2011 Chevrolet Volt is still the most fuel-efficient and advanced hybrid you will ever get to buy.
